The Client Concept
A client in SAP is used for multiple logins on a single instance. It provides data security, ensuring that one user with one client cannot see the data of another user with another client. A client is the highest hierarchy within the SAP system, and it is a self-contained data area unit with separate master records and a complete set of tables.
Types of Clients
There are different types of clients in SAP, each serving a specific purpose. These include:
- Development Client: This is where most of the configuration happens. It has a full master data and a complete set of tables.
- Quality Client: This is where all the tests are done, confirming all the end-to-end processes with the business.
- Production Client: This is where the system goes live. It is used for day-to-day business activities.
Viewing a Client in SAP

The Purpose of Various Clients

- Development Client: This is where the entire new configuration for the projects is created and transported to other clients.
- Quality Assurance Client: This is where integration testing is done and all quality parameters are checked.
- Production Client: This is where all day-to-day business activities occur. Users are not supposed to post day-to-day activities in any other client other than the production client.
