Assigning SAP Roles Directly to an SAP User Account

Assigning SAP Roles Directly to an SAP User Account

Roles can be assigned directly or indirectly to a user account. Indirect assignment is carried out by allocating the employee and roles in hierarchical roles, like departments, cost centers, locations or business roles. If the employee has an SAP user account, the SAP roles in the hierarchical roles are inherited by the user account.

To react quickly to special requests, you can assign roles directly to the user account.

If the user account is managed through a CUAClosed, roles can be selected from all clients assigned to this user account.
