User Management in XI implementation

Hi,

Could someone provide me the user management and authorization assignment in an XI implementation.

What are the authorizations that shall be given to an XI developer. In our case the XI developer is doing admuin work also like SLD config etc. But still as an administrator I do not want to give him all the authorizations. Is there any standard XI implementation methodology?

Regards,

Shobhit

    Hi Shobit,

    I guess u can give your developer access to Administration rights in XI as there me be issues with Object locks and cache refreshing

    In case there is need of an object locked during development, ur developer needs to remove the lock before he can proceed with editing that object.

    if you are still skeptical, you need not give him admin rights, and ask you to be called on to login as admin and remove locks/refresh cache.

    Thanks,

    Hi Shobhit,

    I am not sure if you were asking what kind of authorizations should be given to a XI developer in a real time project.

    But anyway it is purely depending on your project structure to give the proper rights to the developer.

    You can have a look at this link on the various user roles in XI.

    Hi Shobit,

    you have several roles:

    SAP_XI_DISPLAY_USER

    SAP_XI_DEVELOPER

    SAP_XI_CONFIGURATOR

    SAP_XI_CONTENT_ORGANIZER

    SAP_XI_MONITOR

    SAP_XI_ADMINISTRATOR

    SAP_SLD_CONFIGURATOR

    SAP_SLD_ADMINISTRATOR

    Most of them are composed from other roles. Look to transaction PFCG to see the single roles and a description.

    For Java stack authorisations have a look to Michals weblog
