QAS Approval Process

I want to understand, whether SOD (segregation of duties) is practiced in quality approval process. whether the person, who created a change request can approve the change request in QAS system?

what are the various role & responsibilities implemented in SAP change management process? what extent SOD (segregation of duties) is implemented in the same process?

Your answer will help me implement, some internal controls in our organization. We are one of the fortune 500 company (just to understand the size of the company)

Thanks in advance,

    Depending on the organisation, different approaches are used.

    The transport system can be authorized depending on Activity and Request Type.

    To handle this, there is one authorization object called S_TRANSPRT.

    In this object, you can set the values of two fields.

    - Activity (ACTVT), which can have one or more of the following

    01 Create or generate

    02 Change

    03 Display

    05 Lock

    06 Delete

    23 Maintain

    43 Release

    50 Move

    60 Import

    65 Reorganize

    75 Remove

    78 Assign

    90 Copy

    - Request Type (TTYPE), which can have one or more of the following

    CLCP Client Transports

    CUST Customizing requests

    DTRA Workbench requests

    MOVE Relocation transports

    PATC Preliminiary corrections and deliveries

    PIEC Object list

    TASK Tasks

    TRAN Transport of copies

    Based on this, you can create different roles.

    Some Examples:

    - Role for creating Workbench Request

    - Role for creating Task

    - Role for Release of Task

    - Role for Release of Workbench Request

    - Role for Import Request

    Is this what you ment ?

      Sorry for the delay...

      If a test failes, you have (in my opinion) three choises:

      - Create an reversal request and transport to test system and reject afterwards (e g not transported to production).

      - Correct the problem import the reqeust to the test system. If this is OK, then both request must be approved and also imported in the correct order.

      - Correct the problem, include the entries from the rejected request and import to the test system. If this is OK, the only this request is approved and transported to production.
