SAP Access Control 10.0 comes with a feature called HR Trigger. It can create a request automatically in the Access Request Management module owing to the changes in different fields (infotype and subtype) of SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM). Learn how to:
• Configure SAP Access Control 10.0 to integrate with SAP ERP HCM.
• Take advantage of the HR Trigger functionality in SAP Access Control 10.0 to automatically provision and de-provision access via HR event triggering.
In SAP Access Control 10.0, an HR Trigger
is a feature that enables an SAP Access Control system to capture HR events such as hiring, termination, and retirement, and then use these events to provision or de-provision access depending on conditions defined in SAP Access Control 10.0.
In general, all master data is maintained in a specific SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM) system. Once a change occurs in this system, the data needs to be disseminated to other associated SAP ERP HCM systems. HR Triggers in Access Request Management provide the means to automatically transfer the changes from the SAP ERP HCM system to other systems. When an event is triggered in the SAP ERP HCM system, such as hiring a new employee, rules are applied along with its corresponding HR Trigger. The rule and HR Trigger initiate an action for the Access Request Management module to create a request for system access.
HR Trigger is a solid feature in SAP Access Control 10.0 that is underutilized because of complexity in configuration and a lack of information around use of the functionality. I walk you through a step-by-step process for HR Trigger configuration and use. I cover integration of SAP Access Control 10.0 Service Pack 11 with SAP ERP HCM 7.3 (the latest version of both SAP Access Control and SAP ERP HCM at the time this article was written).
Step 1. Install a Foundation Component on SAP GRC and Plug-In Components on SAP ERP HCM
To enable HR Trigger functionality, you need to install GRCFND_A (an SAP GRC Foundation component) on SAP Access Control, and the matching GRCPINW and GRCPIERP plug-in components on the SAP ERP ERP HCM system.
