SAP NetWeaver Business Client: Sample Roles

SAP NetWeaver Business Client: Sample Roles

We are often asked about roles. Ideally, you need to ask a consultant. However, I hope this list of roughly 130 sample roles will help you get started with the Business Client. SAP delivers many predefined roles, which you can use as templates, by copying and adapting. I've sorted these links by EHP.

Please bear in mind that new content is *always* included in a new role, never added to an existing one. This means that a role in EHP3 will contain only EHP3 innovations - ie POWLs, but not FPM applications. So you need to search for new applications by EHP in descending numerical order. If necessary, you can use an older role as a template, then add new content to it. We hope to upgrade the roles at some point for EHP7 - after which the older roles will become obsolete. I 'll provide more detail on that as soon as possible.

 

Roles in EHP7

Roles in NWBC (for EHP7)

 

Roles in EHP6

Some sample documentation. I hope to add to this later.

Note: Each of these root documents is a placeholder. The useful information is in the structure to the left, so make sure you haven't hidden the structure ;-):

SAP Retail

Single Roles Logistics General

Single Roles Materials Management

Single Roles Logistics Execution

Single Roles Sales and Distribution

Single Roles Basis

 

Roles in EHP5

The following business function documentation contain a list of new roles available in EHP5 for each business function:

Business Function ERP_NWBC_ROLES = ERP Roles for SAP NetWeaver Business Client

Business Function HCM_NWBC_ROLES = HCM Roles for SAP NetEaver Business Client

For more information on each of these roles, see SAP Library: Roles in SAP NetWeaver Business Client (again the useful info is in the structure to the left).

 

Roles in EHP5: Page Builder Roles

(I have color-coded these black, because, apart from the WD-based home page, they seem to contain only transactions. Please correct me if I'm wrong; I haven't been able to check every single one).

SAP_EP_RW_FDMN

SAP_EP_RW_FKMN

SAP_EP_RW_FSCM-CR

SAP_EP_RW_CO_KSMN

SAP_EP_RW_CO_KAMN

SAP_EP_RW_CO_CK00

SAP_EP_RW_CO_KKPM

SAP_EP_RW_CO_KEMN

SAP_EP_RW_IM

 

 

Roles in EHP4 and EHP3

These roles were developed as part of best practices and follow these naming conventions:

  • SAP_AIO_* (= All In One) - These single roles were designed as templates for you to define your own enterprise-specific roles. Note that these roles are only in the system when the KYK business function is activated (See the comment below for details).
  • SAP_BPR_* (=Best Practice Role, delivered in EHP3)
  • SAP_NBPR_* (= New Best Practice Role, delivered in EHP4 - BUT only as part of the Best Practice add-on)

 

For more documentation on each of these roles, see SAP Library: Preconfigured Roles, POWER Lists, and Reports ; http://help.sap.com/bestpractices
and http://service.sap.com/bestpractices also provide useful information.

 

Key

Purple = Role with FPM application(s)  + WD applications + POWLs

Blue = Role with WDA applications + POWLs

Green = Role with POWLs

Black = Roles with transactions only

Using  the sample roles: Getting started

.      To find what transactions and applications are available, choose a role from the list above and open it in Role Maintenance(PFCG) , in Display Mode.

Look for the different application types as follows:

  • Transactions
  • POWL : Type = WDY_APPLICATION, Object = POWL
  • FPM application or WD ABAP application = WDY_APPLICATION  (many but not all FPM application names contain the string “FPM”.
  • Page Builder : Type = WDY_APPLICATION, Object = WDR_CHIP_PAGE .
    There are only 12 of these. These are intended as templates to get you started. Generally, we expect you to want the freedom to choose your own content. They are listed at the end of this document
  • Side panel = Type = WDY_APPLICATION, Object = WDR_CHIP_PAGE.
    Unlike Page Builder cockpits, the Node Option = Side Panel (View this by choosing Other Node Details)
  • Web page : Type = Web Address or File, Object = <URL>.

For example, the role Production Planner SAP_NBPR_PRODPLANNER-S looks like this:

SHOT_Roles_SAP_NBPR_PRODPLANNER-S.png

You can now extend the role by copying transactions or folders from other roles.

For more information, see SAP Help Portal: Role Maintenance in PFCG

 

Using the sample roles: Next steps

I hope to add more information to this blog as it becomes available.  In the meantime, to find out more, your best bet is to ask a consultant for your  line of business.
