Organizational management in SAP IDM
Are new supervisors regularly entered in your organizational management because people leave the company or change department? You can certainly answer this question with a clear “Yes!” because such changes are part of normal operation. Unfortunately, these changes are not transferred to SAP Identity Management (IDM). By default, no organizational unit hierarchy can be mapped in SAP IDM, since the organizational units are flat on the identities. It is therefore not guaranteed that you can determine the correct superiors of your employees in the IDM at any time. As a result, it can happen that the wrong approvers or those who have already left the approval process are still stored as such in the IDM.
And it is precisely for these reasons that you might be looking for a simple and quickly usable solution for mapping your managers from organizational management in SAP IDM.
All organizational units, including their superiors, are loaded, and processed in SAP Identity Management via a regularly running job that can be customized for you. As a result, the correct managers are always determined, and no application ends up with an incorrect approver.
Xiting has developed a solution that regularly reads the entire organizational structure from SAP Human Capital Management (HCM) and maps it in SAP IDM. This makes it easier to dynamically determine superiors in SAP IDM or to access higher-level or lower-level organizational units.
In summary, you will receive:
- Hierarchical mapping of the organizational units created in HCM in SAP Identity Management
- Constantly updated and active organizational units in SAP Identity Management
- The correct superiors can be determined dynamically for approval processes
After each job run, you receive a picture of your organizational units as maintained in HCM. The organizational units now available are shown hierarchically and are linked from the top to the bottom level. This means that the correct superiors of your employees can be determined in IDM at any time and approval procedures no longer reach the wrong approver or an approver who may have already left.
This solution will provide you for the first time with the possibility of an automated lifecycle of organizational units in SAP Identity Management.
