Doubt of roles ESS for SAP ECC 604

Dear Experts.

Please Can you help me with the following doubt that I have with the roles de ESS.

We are working with .SAP ECC 604, and BP 1.41 for ESS.

We have installed the SAPK-60416INEAHRRXX for the component EA-HRRXX.

We have in this moment all the services of ESS implemented.

The doubt that I have is the following:

The Roles that I should use for that ESS work fine for an UserEnd are the following:





SAP_ESSUSER_ERP_14 with the corrections that are indicated in the Note 1373177 - Back end authorization roles missing in EHP4.

Or is necessary that I assign also the role SAP_ESSUSER_ERP05. We did a copy of this last role.

Thank in advance for your help.

    for ehp4 only SAP_ESSUSER_ERP_14 is needed! so copy this onto a z role and modify accordingly for your country specific needs

      SAP_EMPLOYEE_ERP_14 is a complementary Role, you have to add it your own custom Roles. Usually, at least one more Role (based on SAP_EMPLOYEE_ERP05 composite Role) is needed. This, includes generic + country-specific auth.

      Additionally, depending on the scope of your Project, you can add;

      - SAP_BC_EMPLOYEE for SAPOffice and Workitems authorizations

      - SAP_BC_ENDUSER for general SAP tasks, like jobs & spool

      - SAP_ESSUSER_ERP was used for ESS in ITS version

      -- SAP_EMPLOYEE_ERP contains Roles mentioned above, so you can use it directly

      Take in count usually std Roles does not provide all fields used in auth objects, so it's a recommended practice to copy a std Role, then complete the fields, then assign to Users.

      Kind regards
