Reports/Documents in SAP EHSM


Hello colleagues,

I have a question. I would like to know if I can configure additional <Document type> in EHSM. Before documenting my questions, I will use standard SAP EH&S to explain what I'm looking for.

Standard SAP EH&S - Document tab - User-defined text type

In Standard SAP EH&S, we are able to configure different "User Defined text type".


- Police Investigation

- Dangerous goods investigation

- Safety investigation

- etc.

Using an authorization object, we are able to restrict which <User-Defined text type> the user can select to upload his document.

SAP EHSM - Reports/Documents tab

Perform these steps:

- Go to the Reports/Document tab

- Go to section called <Documents>

- Click the <Add button>

- A drop down list opens to select <Document> or <Link>

- Select <Document>

- A new window opens called <Choose File>

- In this window, we have a field called <Document type>. I only see the value called <Other Document>.

Question no 1:

- Can we configure additional <Document types> like:

- Police Investigation

- Dangerous good Investigation

- etc.

- If yes, could you please let me know where in the IMG since I was unable to find it.

Question no 2:

- If question no1 is Yes, is there an authorization object I can use to secure the <Document type> a user can select? I need to ensure the Safety Department won't be able to open a 'Police Investigation' document. If there is an authorization object, could you please let me know the name of it?

Thanks for your support!
