Assigning Structural Profiles to SAP User accounts

Assigning Structural Profiles to SAP User accounts

Structural profiles can be assigned directly or indirectly to user accounts. In the case of indirect assignment, employees and structural profiles are arranged in hierarchical roles. The number of structural profiles assigned to an employee is calculated from the position in the hierarchy and the direction of inheritance. If you add an employee to roles and that employee owns a user account, the user account is added to the structural profile. Prerequisites for indirect assignment of employees to user accounts:

  • Assignment of employees and structural profiles is permitted for role classes (department, cost center, location or business role).
  • User accounts are marked with the option Groups can be inherited.
  • User accounts and structural profiles belong to the same SAP clients.

Furthermore, structural profiles can be assigned to employees through IT Shop requests. Add employees to a shop as customers so that structural profiles can be assigned through IT Shop requests. All structural profiles assigned to this shop can be requested by the customers. Requested structural profiles are assigned to the employees after approval is granted.
