2355788 - Domain restrictions behavior

Symptom

Our company is very reglemented and as a result we have many domains and domain restrictions and we would like to know how the application behaves in certain scenari.

Environment

  • SAP HCM Suite
  • Learning Management System (LMS)
  • System admin > Security > Roles / Domains / Domain Restrictions

Resolution

The customer has created many domains and domain restrictions (one for each country) and many roles (each containing a set of workflows) and as a result admin have an average of 2 to 4 roles assigned to them.

For example, the admin may have the same report workflow assigned to him in 2 different roles and each workflow has a different domain restriction applied to it.

1. Multiple domain restrictions applied to same workflow in different roles assigned to one admin
an admin is allowed to view data for say Switzerland and Italy but the customer has created 2 domain restrictions one for Switzerland and one for Italy.
In order for the admin to view data for each domain restriction, he has the report workflow in 2 of the roles assigned to him, 1 has the domain restriction for Switzerland and the other for Italy.

Q: Please confirm the application will treat this as an addition and give the admin access to data in both domain restrictions?
A: Yes, the application will grant the admin access to data from both domain restrictions

2. Same workflow in multiple roles with different level of restriction:
Q:What happens when the workflow exists in several roles assigned to the admin, and for one of the role the workflow does not have ANY domain restriction populated
A: the workflow without restriction will take over the same workflow in the other roles for where a restriction is applied and therefore grant access to ALL the data
