ESS authorizations vs. Backend authorizations

Hi experts,

We have implemented ESS / MSS Portal for a multinational company with particular requirements regarding authorizations.

There are a few cases that portal users from a specific country are also HR Admins of other countries (companies from other countries). Each HR Admin portal user must be the same of his backend user and we have to ensure that he has no access to data from other employees on his country.

On the other hand Portal MSS backend role (authorization object P_ORGIN) gives access to some infotypes of employees belonging to his own country, in other to have access to his employees.

Do you have any suggestions about how can we manage these authorizations?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

AS

    use context sensitive authorisation ie p_orgincon, here you can have multiple checks assigned.

    check the documentation in note 902000

    Or you would need a badi to do this.

    But i think if you dont want HR admin to access local country data, you could restrict via p_orgin or use p_pernr

    Hi,

    Please try by assigning different roles, one as user and other admin of different company.

      Hi Jyothi,

      Thanks for your reply.

      If I assign both roles one for ESS user and backend admin of different country (note that this role will give acceso to PA20) this user will have access to employee data from his own country which should not happen.

      Any other suggestions.

      Thanks in advance.
