I am new to SAP HR so pardon my extremely basic questions. I wanted to know the exact difference between UGR and reference. When we customise a personnel action eg Hiring then what is the significance of UGR and reference. I have three conditions here:
UGR Reference Infogroup column Result
1. Blank 99 99 Successful customising
2. 40 99 40 Unsuccessful customising
3. 40 Blank 40 Unsuccessful customising
I tried the above stated things but got successful customising only 1st thing. Please guide
Brilliant Question indeed !!.. sometimes many consultants work even without knowin the very basic things and am glad that your had a query on the same
Now, UGR as know its referred as User Groups. An UGR is assigned to users, as the name indicates is a User Group and not triggered to a country.
There are two types of Usergroups : general User Groups and Authorization user group
General user Groups to categorize all the users in a a specific group and can be a memeber of authorization User group
Authorization User Group is related specifically for security management
Reference User group
If parameter UGR is not set in the user defaults (transaction USER), enter the reference user group that should be used for the menu layout.
When user group parameter value is empty for a user then the configuration for reference user group takes affect.
Hope this resolves your query or else feel free to touch base
