HR Trigger and user id

Hi everybody!

Please explain me how the process looks like when we use HR trigger. I found the phrase from HR trigger doc "change in the info type 0105 and Subtype 0001 (User ID)". As I have understood, the HR-employee set User ID in PA30. But I don't understand where she/he gets user ids... So, my question is how should HR-employee decide what login to set? Can it set any login? Can we assign any data source for type 0105 and subtype 0001?

    subtype 0001 is the SAP user; that is where you link a user to an employee ID so that the system can resolve an employee data for example for ESS functionalities where the user is logged with his/her credentials.

    SAP user are usually created by the SAP admins, so that is where you should probably start.

    As for HR trigger... I think it would help if you past the whole sentence/paragraph.... because 7 words is probably not enough for any to understand.

      Exactly in our case there wouldn't be any security issues, because the user might be created just in CUA central system, where our GRC system takes/synchronize user ids. However, in common, I also don't see any problems with security, even if GRC or ERP is used as a user data source. GRC might have created an empty user without any role, but seems that is the question for other area of SAP - Idea Place :)
