How to use the Maintain Business Role Groups functionality
With the SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2302 release a new feature is now available: Business Role Groups. With this feature you can create business role groups and assign multiple business roles to them. This helps you to organize your area and easily search for all business roles of a certain category.
In this Blog Post I will show you how you can easily create a Business Role Group and assign it to your roles.
Ensure that you have the Business Catalog SAP_CORE_BC_IAM_GRP_PC assigned to your user. This Business Catalog is also added as default into the Business Role Template SAP_BR_ADMINISTRATOR.
Also, the following restriction types (in the following business catalogs) are required for maintaining business role groups and business user groups:
|Business Catalogs||Restriction Types|
|SAP_CORE_BC_IAM_RM||Business Role (S_BRL)|
|SAP_CORE_BC_IAM_UM||Business User (CLASS)|
Business Role (S_BRL)
Business User (CLASS)
|SAP_CORE_BC_IAM_RM_DISP_PC||Business Role (ROLE_GROUP)|
|SAP_CORE_BC_IAM_UM_DISP_PC||Business User (CLASS)|
