Define Organizational Value Maps

Use In this Customizing activity, you can maintain the organizational value maps used for role derivation. Organizational value mapping is the hierarchical structuring of organizational values. You can use organizational value maps to group organizational values in ways that facilitate mass assignment of authorizations and derivation of roles. For example: If you want to restrict user access by organizational area, you can use the organizational value mapping feature to map roles to different organizational levels. To define all associated organizational values, you can create an organizational value map for each organizational area (such as North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific). You always create an organizational value map with a parent (or primary) organizational level and value, because access control uses that to store and search for the organizational value map. You can create multiple maps for the same parent organizational level and value combination. After the primary organizational level and value are set, you can define the values for all child organizational levels within the map to complete the organizational value map creation. After you create the organizational value map, it can be used by all users as a basis to derive any master role. Activities 1. Create the organizational value map. a) Choose New Entries. b) In the Organizational Value Mapping field, enter a value. This is a unique identifier and can be a number or letter. 2. Maintain the parent organizational level. Select Organizational Level and choose an organization from the dropdown list. Access Control pulls the organizations from the SAP back end. 3. Maintain the child organizational levels: a) Select a parent organizational level and double-click Org Level Mapping Details. b) Choose New Entries. c) Select Cld. Org. Level and choose a child organizational level. d) Select the Sequence field and then enter any number.
