How SAP CRM Security Works

Print Friendly

As I am always on the look for useful information about SAP CRM security, I sometimes stumble on interesting topics and/or other websites.

One of these is the website called HowCrmWorks

They seem to create great info graphics, which I personally think are quite innovative to explain something in an interesting way. I asked them if they would allow me to reference useful posts they make on my website and they agreed, so here we go.

One of those info graphics looks like this: How SAP CRM Security Works ?

If you grasp this picture AND read my blog posts you should be well on your way to understand the entire picture.

 

good luck

In CRM UI we have requirement for authorisation to display various sections on CRM UI transaction. I would like to understand if there is any standard way of managing this within SAP.

If yes please explain it with an example.

Hi Attu
that's not possible via 'standard" authorization objects.
I presume you are referring to showing certain assignmnent blocks on an object (e.g. lead or opportunity) which should not be visible to everyone?

If that's your requirement, you could:
1) work with configuration keys and different view configurations in that case where you hide assignment block x in config key A and do show it in config key B.
Then you would also need 2 business roles with the same functionality but having different config key.

2) you can always try to see if you can use a badi and encode your own authorisation check , if you search, I think there is one which can be used (search on google on the term "do_config_determination sap crm"

cheers
Davy
