Role Mapping For Portal Role Assignment and ABAP Role Assignment - GRC 10

Hello All

Can any one please tell me how an SAP Enterprise role and SAP ABAP technical role can be clubbed /mapped together for role assignment via ARM?

We are not using the business role concept here .. , so I need answers to achieve this functionality using the ABAP Dummy role concept.

I know people have does this before, but i needed more clarity on this approach.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Uma,

    As per my understanding whenever users request for a ABAP technical role then they should be provisioned with corresponding Portal role. Is this what you wanted to achieve?

    In GRC 10/10.1 we have Role mapping functionality which can be used for your requirement.

    Let me know if this is your requirement so that can share more details about role mapping.

    Hi Uma,

    The other way of achieving this instead of using BRM is by mapping the EP Role to the ABAP role in Portal User administration Tab.

    Example :


    Portal Role : Z_PORTAL_ROLE

    In EP using User Admin Tab assign the Group (ABAP Role: Z_ABAP_ROLE) to the Portal Role : Z_PORTAL_ROLE. With this all the users assigned to this ABAP role are automatically assigned to Portal Role .

    Note : Abap Roles are recoginsed as Portal Groups in EP

    Let me know if you need more detials about this.

      Thanks Sandeep, that was great info!

      As we were planning to have more than one role to be added to each parent / composite role and the role approval is needed at the role level this approach can not be used, but good to know we can integrate ABAP to EP like that.
