How to inherit roles between root organization unit and sub units

Hi all,

I have root organization unit and sub units:



>Department 1


>Department 2


>Department 3


>Department 4


>Department 5

I would like it to work like this that all people from all departments would have access to transaction ZTEST. Most obvious way would be for me to assign appropriate role to unit Company. Unfortunately it looks like roles are not inherit between units like this. So question is how it should be done? Do I have to assign this role to all departments to make it work?

Best regards

Marcin Cholewczuk

    I faintly suspect you are refering to indirect role assignment via Organization Management here?

    Perhaps you want to rephrase your question with more details?

    Hello Marcin,

    inheritation bases on authorization field level. So first you have to identify the authoriaztion object(s) which protect the function(s), then you can identify, if a field protects the 'units' you mentioned. If you found fitting ones, you can check, if they are org.level fields. if not you can convert them to orglevel fields with reprot pfcg_orgfield_create.

    After that you can use the derived role concept as per
