SAP Role

Hi,

I'm new to SAP and have had no formal training. We are implementing R/3 and I have been assigned the task of setting up security. I have no idea where to start. My question is, is there a base role that everyone should be assigned? Something that allows them to do the basis that every user should be able to do? And if so, what's the name of that role? Any help at all would be great! Thanks!!

Hi,

Since you are very fresh to this fied and asked to setup SAP security, I would advice you to go thru the "Authorizaiton Made Easy Guide" first.  That will give you the overall view of how SAP authorization works and how to set it up.

Moreover, there are many SAP Standard roles are avilable in the system which you can make use of it.  If you have access to SAP system, use PFCG transaction and search for *SAP*, you will get list of standard roles which are available / given by SAP.

But, my advice is that, create a custom made role iwith a referrence of SAP roles, instead of using SAP Standard roles.

Regards
Anandm

Hello Anandeid,

I agree with Anandm's remarks to go through the Authorizations made easy guide first.

Answer to  your question on a basis role: SAP Basis is in SAP terms the area of the SAP administrators, setting up the system, checking the basic functionality of the system, tuning performance, etc. Basis roles are too "basic" for functional users in finance, controlling, sales, materials area's. For these area's other SAP roles have been created or can be created.

Again: read the book first and first play around in a Sandbox environment to get familiar with SAP authorizations. Perhaps an SAP course on authorizations even would be a better choice as this would speed up the knowledge aquirement a lot.

Lots of succes!

I found the answer I was looking for. A base role that everyone can be assigned is -->

SAP_BC_Enduser
Non critical  basis authorizations for all users.
