Key Concept

SAP Access Control is used to provision roles or profiles to users in back-end systems in a compliant way. Every request for access submitted in SAP Access Control goes through a pre-defined approval process composed of approvers such as manager, role owner, compliance team, or system owner. One of these approvals could be training managers in companies that require users to undertake a training course before access is granted.

More and more companies have started using SAP Access Control to automate compliance checks, but very rarely have we come across companies using the full potential of the tool. One such functionality is training verification. It offers a vast scope of automation in the user access provisioning process, but is often not used by companies. The use of training verification functionality can automate the training check in the user access provisioning process, thereby reducing the manual work of checking the training completion as well as improving compliance. We present the different options available to automate the training check using your SAP Access Control system.
