Assign users to position - SRM Organization Structure


We are on SRM 4.0 and this is regarding organization structure management.

We have a scenario where client creates their organization structure - orgnanization units, positions etc.

When a new person is hired, his SAP user id is created (SU01 ID). Now I need to assign this user to a particular position.

My questions are -

  • Is it correct to use USERS_GEN transaction for this purpose?
  • If I use USERS_GEN transaction - create users from existing SU01 users - option, system creates a new position with the user's name. Then I ask the admin from client to assign that user to appropriate position. when this is done, there is still a position left empty -

For example, Admin creates a position called 'Assistant Manager' (no BP or user assigned to this, means an open position). When someone is hired for that position, an SAP user id is created - let the user be myself - Dhananjay Hegde. Then, I use USERS_GEN to integrate this user into organization structure. This creates a new position under the organization structure with name 'Dhananjay Hegde' under which a Business Partner and under that there will be US. Later, Admin right clicks on the open position 'Assistant Manager' and assigns this new user to that position. Now the position created with name 'Dhananjay Hegde' is empty.

I think this is not the correct way. Is it?

Please guide.

Thank you

Dhananjay Hegde

    USERS_GEN creates a position also. So, you should create a user, bp, cp and s via USERS_GEN and only then rename it.

    All manual activities (assignments) can be done via transaction PP01.

    This, how the assignment looks (should look) like.

    I do not quite understand your meaning.

    It is OK to create a new user with trx users_gen(option:create users from existing SU01 users).

    Then this user will be generated in the chosn organization unit.

    If you want to move this user to other organization or group, you may reassign it via trx ppoma_bbp.

    Best regards,
