Help in implementing SAP HCM Structural authorizations

Hi Folks,

My client was having SAP ECC with FICO modules and recently client went live with SAP HCM with OM,PA,TIME,PAYROLL and BENEFITS Modules.(HCM in the same system) During Go live we were using standard SAP Authorizations.


Now they wanted to Go for Structural authorizations. I am looking for some inputs on below.  We are using P_ORGIN Auth object for current security.


The FI users are 900 and HR users are around 100. What will be the impact on the FI users if I activate structural authorizations,as SAP HCM module also installed in the same ECC system along with FICO.

Because I read, If we don’t assign structural profiles to a user than they will get SAP* user profile. What does this mean?

What is the best practice to assign a structural profile to a user Directly via OOSP or via IT1017?

What are best practices in implementing structural authorizations.

If anybody having recent detailed step by step guide for structural profiles(Other than Norm & Carl), please share.
