SAP C4C - Business Roles

You can create business roles and assign them to work centers to perform their job functions. To help standardize system access, business roles can be created. This enables you to predefine access rights in the form of a template, so that you can assign them to multiple business users, who perform similar business tasks.

Step 6

Navigate to access restrictions, enter values for read access and write access. You can restrict the read and write access for a work center view. By defining the read and write access, you also define the access rights for all work items that are assigned to the access context of the work center view.

Step 7

Navigate to UI Switches. UI switches are defined by custom development and can be used to make fields, buttons, or sections of user interfaces hidden, read-only, or mandatory. You can assign any UI switches that have been developed to the business role here. Using UI switches enables you to assign a particular version of a UI to the business role, and in turn, to the users to whom the business role is assigned.
