Org data in Derived role differ from Parent role

Hi there

I need some help please, I am in the process of creating various parent / derived roles and have found that when I update the parent role (org data) and I do a generate do a derived role update the values in the org data is not correctly pulled through to the derived roles.


In the parent role for Org data "Purchase Org" the previous value was "/" so that it could be specified in the derived roles should they require the split on this field, however the business has decided that they do not require a restriction on this field so I went back to the parent role and changed the value to "*", so I generated the parent role, updated the derived roles, but when I go to any of my derived roles that field value is still blank, it did not pull through the value * .

We are currently on

SAP_ABA 701 0005 SAPKA70105

SAP_BASIS 701 0005 SAPKB70105

I have created the derived roles with the parent role as the derived from role, it does pull through the values but just does not update it once I do make changes.

Your help / suggestions would really be appreciated as I need to create MANY roles.

    Hi Sonja

    It seems that you are not doing a Generate--> Adjust derived for the derived roles. Once you have created the derived role and saved it, you need to go back to the parent role and Go to Authrizations tab --> Change Authrization data --> Authrizations(Menu bar) --> Adjust Derived --> Generate Derived roles.

    However after the first time you would need to maintain the organisation values in derived roles individually.

    Hope this helps.

    • Sonja,

      for such exceptional cases you can use the 'problematic' function for org.level fields. Simply maintain the field value in the master role not by the org.level popup, but directly (with the pencil). The field looses then its special status, and the field value will overwrite the field values of the derived roles.....

      If you want to reset the statuses, you will have to delete those values then in every role with the dustin icon. the field is then an orgelvel field within the roles again.

    HI Sonja Pretorius,

    Parent role and Derived role concept itself is like that, you have to maintain all Org. value in Child role (derived role) not in Parent role.

    In your case you have to change all Child roles (derived roles) whever Purchase Org. value is available.

    I hope you understood.
