Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Resolution

To access the features "Manage Permission Groups", "Manage Permission Roles", "User Role Search" and "View User Permissions", users must be added to the group of users allowed to access the feature "Manage Role-Based Permission Access". Please follow the below steps to add the users to the group:

  1. Go to Admin Center
  2. Search for "Manage Role-Based Permission Access" or search it directly from Action Search
  3. Click in the Add User button and select the users you want to add



  4. Once selected user is added, the added user will have the access to "Role-Based Permission Admin" enabled by default. You can see from the screenshot below that the checkbox is already checked after adding the user. User will now have acces to use the four features:

    • Manage Permission Groups;
    • Manage Permission Roles;
    • User Role Search;
    • View User Permission;

    Note: You can only have access to all four features or none at all.


This is what the access will look like from Admin Center if you ONLY enable "Role-Based Permission Admin" from Manage Role-Based Permission Access:

NoteManage Role-Based Permission Access by default is only visible and accessible for users who were created from provisioning system. For example SFADMIN, adminsf etc. Access to "Manage Role-Based Permission Access" tool can be restricted by adding and removing users as per the instructions discussed above but with additional step of also enabling the "Allow Access to This Page".





This is what the access will look like from Admin Center if you ONLY enable "Allow Access to this page" from Manage Role-Based Permission Access:

Any users granted with "Allow access to this page" will have access to add or remove other users from this tool. As a security precaution, the system would require that there is at least one user with access to this page. Also, you will not be able to remove your own access to the page. 

    


The access will look like this if both "Allow access to this page" and "Role-Based Permission Admin" is checked:
