Work Centres as of SP15 - A doubt regarding authorisations

Hi all,

If we implement Work Centres for Implementation Project team members, using Work Center Role SAP_SMWORK_IMPL, I have the following doubt:

Within each View and Link, will the system demand only one mapping of authorisation role ?

- example: If, within View called Plan, under Link called Project, if a given user has to open SOLAR01 in Read Only mode while another user has to open it in Full Access mode, how does it work ?

Do we have to copy and create newer Work Centre Roles for all such variations ? OR Do we just assign all possible 'Mapping' under the Link concerned, and the system dynamically decides, based on the User who logs on, as to whether he/she has Read Only or Full Access ?

I have gone through the Security Guide: SAP Solution Manager 4.0 as of SP15 and this aspect does not come out clear - at least not to me!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes you have to create different roles, if there are variations as you said.

    For your project display and edit authorization, in role SAP_SMWORK_IMPL check object S_PROJECT and assign corresponding activity in the each role you cope from this role.

    This will solve your problem, feel free to revert back.

      Thanks for your reply.

      I know you had answered in your first reply too - the reason for my re-checking was because I had a doubt if it was indeed Work Centre Roles that needed to be in multiples. Now, I am more clear.

      I have acknowledged your kind reply. I would like to keep this thread open until the BASIS person is able to resolve for me.

      In due course, I would close the same.

      Best regards,
