EP Permission Manager: SAP Business Technology Platform Extension for SuccessFactors

The extension extends RBP to support managed roles that cannot be granted based on user data or job relationships.

The Challenge: Manual Role-Based Permission Administration

Working with our clients, we’ve noticed that more than 50% of all Role-Based Permissions (RBP) groups are manually maintained based on named users. Many of our customers say that managing this part of the system configuration can be especially sensitive, time-consuming, and difficult to properly document and audit.

The Solution: EP Permission Manager

EP Permission Manager supports customers using the Role-Based Permissions (RBP) security framework within their SAP SuccessFactors system. The application extends RBP to better support the managed roles that can’t be granted based on user data or job relationships and allows for the decentralization of access requests. EP Permission Manager enables you to provide a self-service dashboard integrated with your SAP SuccessFactors solution. The extension enables users to request required access roles and makes it possible for identified approvers to review requests—without having to access the RBP framework.

The solution is built and hosted on the SAP CI and is fully integrated with SAP SuccessFactors. All-access categories, requests, and audit trails are stored and managed in the MDF, meaning that no data is stored outside of your SuccessFactors environment, and you can report on the data with the Online Report Designer.

Business Impact: Simplified Access Management

EP Permission Manager helps distribute an admin-heavy, centralized administrative process, allowing local administrators to review and approve requests. As a result, your organization achieves smoother process times and gets a complete audit trail on all granted system access requests. The SAP BTP extension helps you achieve quicker response times to user requests and reduces lag times by removing the burden of manually updating RBP groups from your central RBP administrator.
