How to inherit roles between root organization unit and sub units

Hi all,

I have root organization unit and sub units:



>Department 1


>Department 2


>Department 3


>Department 4


>Department 5

I would like it to work like this that all people from all departments would have access to transaction ZTEST. Most obvious way would be for me to assign appropriate role to unit Company. Unfortunately it looks like roles are not inherit between units like this. So question is how it should be done? Do I have to assign this role to all departments to make it work?

Best regards

To activate inheritance of roles between root org and sub org units, you need to set switch HR_ORG_ACTIVE to Yes in table PRGN_CUST. Also proper evaluation path has to be used so that user comparison (via PFUD) creates the indirect role assignment to user master records.

You can modify evaluation path US_ACTGR in table T77AW/ tcode OOAW to include root org and its subunits (add entry for relationship O B002 O) and connect the role assigned to root org to the users belonging to sub org units. Then run PFUD which will use this evaluation path to create indirect role assigment.
