Key Concept

Role certification is the process by which an administrator can notify role owners to recheck the roles for which they are responsible. Role owners can ensure that the roles are correct and if required the role owner can make further changes to the role. An administrator can trigger a job to send an email notification to the role owners. Notification is sent on the basis of configuration parameters and the next certify date in a role.

A Business Role Management (BRM) role certificate is a new concept introduced in SAP Access Control 10.0 to certify roles after a specified period of time. You can use role certification to re-check roles. After a designated time period, the administrator uses the role certification process to trigger an email to the role approver to certify the roles again.
