Learning Objectives

Reading this article, you will learn how to:

  • Build roles and assign them to SAP Process Control entities
  • Configure different authorization modes
Key Concept

A business role needs to be assigned to users for all SAP Process Control application entities such as organization, sub-process, or a control via the front end. This is called an entity-level authorization check. To enable extra security, a business role can be defined at the user level via transaction code SU01 first, and then only the corresponding role can be assigned to a user for SAP Process Control entities. This is called second-level authorization and is optional.

Authorization determines access to master data and transactions for business users inside an organization. To implement such a security model, you need to understand the authorization model first. The authorization model can be split into two classifications:
  • Modeling authorization, including role building and authorization metadata
  • Run time execution of authorization checks
