Indirect Role Assignment Within CUA

Hi Experts,

Weu2019re implementing indirect role assignment in SAP HR and exploring the feasibility to include this client as part of CUA. Has anyone implemented this before? Appreciate if you could share.

I understand that CUA able to distribute DIRECT role assignment made from central client to the child client(s), but not so sure if it is possible for INDIRECT role assignment approach. My previous project exclude client with indirect role assignment from the CUA distribution landscape and I wonder why.

Appreciate your input in this matter and looking forward for further discussion.

Best regards and million thanks in advance.

    So I worked on a CUA managed landscape that had systems that featured indirect org assignment hooked in. The association between the User ID and the HR org based position was still maintained locally as the local system contained the HR Org structure, but direct access was still blocked by CUA The roles assigned indirectly were visible from CUA in a different colour. You can still maintain users directly from CUA on top of this. This may be an alternative to consider.

    If the local system does not contain the HR Org structure you are probably going to have to export the structure, so if that is the case you might as well import it to CUA if all org relevant users are maintained there and manage it centrally via the advised link anyway.

      Thanks Sri,

      Based on your input, I believe that is why my previous project exclude HR production (with indirect assignment) from the CUA landscape. I've highlighted my concerns to the project team and plan to do the same but with different reason to be considered -number of ID that need to in 'parent' client (SolMan) since we're implementing ESS/MSS.

      Best Regards.
