Under the Covers with NWBC #4 – No Authorisation
That last one was a doozie, probably time for our hero Bob to take a break and sort out an easy one. This one is much more simple; Alice is getting an authorisation issue when she tries to create a new customer. She can see the entry in her NWBC menu but when she clicks on it she gets a an authorisation error. Never fear Alice… Bob’s got this one covered too.
Well if you’re a security or BASIS administrator then that probably wasn’t anything new to you, if you come from a portal background or are new to all this then maybe it was. So while not the most complex problem to solve it does bring up an interesting question… Do you split your roles into Menu Roles and Authorisation Roles? Doing so certainly has it’s advantages and disadvantages, I’m in favour of having separate menu roles to aid maintenance (imagine having your menu scattered across 100s of potential security roles, being managed by multiple people). I’d be interested to hear how you manage your roles, please comment below if you’d like to share.
There’s one more challenge left for Bob before he can pack up and head home Under the Covers with NWBC #5 – Respond to SAP Support
