Authorization in Portal Component and NWBC

In SAP GRC 10.0 solution, work centers are defined in PCD roles for the Portal component and in PFCG roles for NWBC (NetWeaver Business Client). The work centers are fixed in each base role. SAP delivers these roles however; these roles can be modified by the customer as per requirement.

The locations of application folders and subordinate applications within the service map are controlled by the SAP NetWeaver Launchpad application. Service map is controlled by user authorization so if user doesn’t have authorization to see any application they will be hidden in NetWeaver Business client.
