    upon the business role , the user will be decided what role exactly required to perform in the SRM .

      Hi Muthuraman ,


      Thanks for the reply. But Roles  you have mentioned here are available in SRM 7.0 & Portal after importing business packages. Those roles are not available in ECC 6.0 EHP4.


      But if I create one user having business role BIDDER  in ECC 6.0 EHP4  then which std. role I need to assign to the user.  At this stage ,we are in realization  phase so I have to give std roles to functional team.


      SRM,BI are ok but not sure about roles in ECC 6.0

        User (bidder) in ECC have the same user-ID in SRM, but the roles & user maintenance are different in these two instances.

        So you can give your core team in ECC, access to T-Code likewise ME41, ME47, ME49 etc & provide the authorisation to bbp_bid_inv etc in SRM.


        As you are into realisation phase would suggest that use standard roles only for your functional team.

          HI Sandeep,



          Std. Role is the problem here. I am not able to find out what std. roles SAP provide  in ECC 6.0 from SRM perspective.

            I am not able to find out what std. roles SAP provide in ECC 6.0 from SRM perspective.

            If you are integrating SRM with ECC, I am sure your ECC users, based on their functional areas, already have roles that they are assigned to perform their daily tasks, e.g. transactions ME41, ME42, ME43, ME45 are assigned to something like "strategic procurement role". They don't have to be changed. When you are using Portal for SRM 7, you can choose those portal roles for "Suite", such as "Operational Purchaser (ERP)", "Operational Purchaser (ERP/SRM)".
