SAP Role-Based Security


SAP Role-Based Security is an application that restricts access to critical information based on roles that are assigned to job functions. Permissions to perform certain operations are assigned to specific roles. Users are assigned particular roles, and through those role assignments, acquire computer permissions to perform particular computer-system functions.  Capabilities include:

  • Role assignment - A subject can exercise a permission only if the subject has selected or been assigned a role.
  • Role authorization - A subject's active role must be authorized for the subject. With role assignment, this rule ensures that users can take on only roles for which they are authorized.
  • Permission authorization - A subject can exercise a permission only if the permission is authorized for the subject's active role. With role assignment and authorization, this rule ensures that users can exercise only permissions for which they are authorized.

To ensure a compliant implementation of SAP Security with SAP role-based design, The Baer Group provides experienced consulting resources that understand the business, processes and technical landscape of the security industry.
