Assign permission roles through organisation chart

Here we have a position and employee holding it. An employee has 0105 infotype record with system username. Boom, we have everything to set up automatic permission roles assignment to this user based on his position or job in the organizational chart. If that Vasya was hired to a manager role, he’ll get manager role assigned to him the same time we have 0001 infotype created. When he moves to HR Director his manager role is revoked and a new one assigned to HR Director. Once he gets¬†terminated all permissions are revoked immediately. Information Security Officer will adore you. Here is a standard solution to assign permission roles in SAP HR.

ArchiveLink permissions

Did you know that ArchiveLink could work with HCM authorizations and P_ORGIN permission object? Citate: “With correct set system documents could be attached to any infotype and access to them will be granted by infotype authorizations. Thus if you attach scans to infotype 21 only users with access to 21st infotype will see them”. (?) WHITE PAPER SAP Employee File Management. So, ArchilvLink permissions could use regular SAP permission role objects without any additional¬†customization which is great!

I’ve never used this trick cause all documents were assigned to personnel number and 2 infotype. Nice and free solution.
