SAP S/4HANA Cloud Identity Access Management – Your Knowledge Base

Building up knowledge in the area of SAP S/4HANA Cloud Identity Access Management (IAM) can be a tedious task, especially since SAP S/4HANA Cloud IAM knowledge resources are spread across different channels and offer a wide range of subjects ranging from authorization, SAP Fiori, compliance to integration-related topics. Therefore, I have collected different resources (blog posts, SAP notes, webinars, etc.) in this blog post which can help you to structure the topics and get started.

In general, this blog post is divided into three topics namely

  1. Managing Authorizations
  2. Managing Identities
  3. Tools

Please note this blog post makes no claim to completeness as the development in the SAP S/4HANA Cloud IAM area is fast-moving and new solutions and concepts might be implemented at the time of reading. The idea of this blog post is to provide a knowledge base for SAP users who want to gain knowledge in this area.

Fundamentals

SAP S/4HANA Cloud Identity Access Management The SAP S/4HANA Cloud help documentation provides a general overview of the IAM features in your system.
Webinar SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Identity and Access Management In this recorded webinar you get to learn how to get started with SAP S/4HANA Cloud IAM and the recommended implementation methodology for setting up an authorization conept.
Understanding SAP Business Roles This blog post provides a basic understanding of business roles for SAP S/4HANA (onPrem as well as Cloud). It’s giving interesting thoughts and is worth considering for your authorization concept philosophy.

It is recommended to use the Business Role Templates only in the Starter System and Quality System (e.g. for the fit-to-standard workshop and testing in general).

For the business roles in the Production System, it is strongly recommended to create your own custom business roles based on the identified workplaces. As part of compliance, these custom business roles should then be created and maintained only in the Q-System and transported into the P-System via Software Collections. Changing business roles directly in the P-System could cause an error that would put the productive environment and the productive data at greater risk.
