Assigning User to Position in Org Structure to inherit roles

Postby hrdan » Mon Jul 25, 2011 7:46 am

Hi,

We have a senario where contractors require admin access to the PM area in SAP.

Am after recommendations on best practice to set up their security access.

We assign access via positions and will create positions in a contractor org structure for them.
Should we also create mini HR master records and hire them into the position to inherit the security access or should we simply relate the SAP user id to the position to inherit the secuirity access ??

Many Thanks.

Hi,

If you are already provisioning via the org structure for standard users then it makes sense to follow the same process for your contractors. To my mind, the benefits of a single, consistent process outweigh additional admin overhead of hire+retire for these users.

Hi,

Thanks for your response ... we don't currently have any users directly assigned to positions, all users have HR master records. This is the first time we have come accross such a senario.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm a bit confused to be honest as you mention "we assign access via positions" and then "we don't currently have any users directly assigned to positions". Ultimately however you provision now, I would strongly recommend that you continue along that path for consistency, even if it does mean creating structures or data for contractors.
