Re: Depth of Evaluation for Standard Evaluation Paths (Bottom Up Approach)

Hi All,

We are facing a unique issue when using OOSP and defining evaluation path. for e.g. we used the standard SBESX (Staff assignments along Organizational structure). We also defined the following fields to test the Org structure results for a user's structural authorization on what he/she can see (e.g. Org unit(O), Positions(S), Users(P))

1. Object Type = O

2. Evalutaion Path = SBESX

3. Status vector = 12345

4. Depth (D) = 5 (which defaults to 1 automatically if we set the sign field to -(negative) for Bottom-up approach (displaying org structure bottom to up)

5. Function Module = RH_GET_ORG_ASSIGNMENT

6. Key Date = D

The issue we have is for the above settings on OOSP Depth field defaults to 1 everytime we use the Bottom up approach (i.e setting the Sign field to - (negative)). Has anyone encountered the above problem with the depth field? Let us know if you had any fix or you had to escalate this to SAP?

Best regards,

    hi murali,

    I cannot give you an answer on why exactly the depth filed is defaulting to 1 when using the negative in the sign fields (T77PR-SSIGN). but can you perhaps explain what you're trying to accomplish with your structural profile. in that case, maybe I/we can figure out a way to circumvent the use of the sign field...

      Something that could help is the creation of a custom relationship - similar to an 012 relationship, you could remove the entries that are not required. If you are not sure how to do this then you could chat to the HR consultants about this.

      Then use this relationship to allocate the relevant org units to the HR Specialist position. Then you could use a pretty simple structural auth for O-S-P.
