Is it possible to restrict which Business Role is assignable to a Business User?

Hello Dear SAP,

 

With the administrator role I can assign business roles to the business users. For all business users to all business roles.

I would like to create a subadmin business role. For example a Purchaser Administrator. The Purchaser administrator can only assign the business roles that are related to purchasing. Is that even possible? How would I handle this?

I decided to restrict a copied version of the administrator role to achiev this. I restricted the businessroles with a assigned bussines group. Therefore in the value help it should only display the purchase business roles(according to the bussines group). But the restriction simply doesnt work! it doesnt has any effect of restriction. This seems like a software bug to me.

 

Kind regards.

Dear Customer, 

 

Unfortunately, it's not possible to restrict which Business Roles an user is authorized to assign to others. 

If the user has authorization to assign Business Users to Business Roles, he will be able to assign all the Business Roles available... 

 

However, I have tried to find any alternative to provide to you and there's a functionality that might be something similar.

This functionality is the Maintain Business User Groups and Maintain Businsess Role Groups.

With Maintain Business User Groups app you can create business user groups and assign multiple business users to them. This helps you to organize your area and easily search for all business users of a certain category (for example to assign them to business roles). Grouping also facilitates maintenance of authorizations. If you are the super administrator for all areas, you can delegate this task to administrators for the relevant areas, such as Financials. In this case, you would create a business user group for Financials.

In this case, you would create a business role group for Financials and allow to assign these business roles only to particular user groups.
