Discover how to enable HR auditing in your SAP system using these step-by-step instructions as your guide. Also learn the simple configuration steps to take to track and report changes in your HR data.
Key Concept

SAP table views V_T585A, V_T585B, V_T585C, and T77CDOC_CUST enable you to capture infotype audit logs in SAP Personnel Administration (personal data and organizational data). Your HR and compliance departments can monitor changes using SAP standard report RPUAUD00 (logged changes in infotype data) to display personal data and report RHCDOC_DISPLAY (display change documents) to display organizational data.

Audit functionality in the SAP ERP HCM system is configurable, flexible, and easy to use. I show you how to enable audit tracking in Personnel Administration (PA), Organizational Management (OM), and reports. You are able to report on who changed what, when, and where. This article outlines two types of audit logs, how to enable capturing changes to your HR master data, how to display and delete audit logs, best practices for setting up change documents, and finally, things to keep in mind while configuring and executing audit reports.

HR data by nature is extremely sensitive and needs to be tracked and protected. Government regulations, statutory requirements, and company policies all determine how to track and protect this sensitive data. I show how you can enable capturing changes to your company’s sensitive HR data, and how you can track the changes, report them, and modify who can access or make changes to HR data.

Using step-by-step instructions, I explore how you can audit your HR master data. I also show you how to take advantage of the enhanced auditing functionality available in your SAP system by using a few configuration steps and standard SAP reports.

  1. Why you need HR audit logs and change logs in your SAP system
