a combination of employee records, business users, business roles, and access
restrictions, Development Team will customize and control users’ access to the
Employees and Business Users
You create employee records manually or import
employees using the migration template. The system generates a business user
for every employee you create in the solution. You can edit the business user
to assign access rights, and business roles.
The business user allows you to control which
work centers and views a user can access in the solution and the employee
record lets you manage which data a user interacts with in the solution
through the use of organizational structures, team assignments, and
To help standardize system access, you can
create business roles. These enable 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.
You have the ability to grant and restrict
authorizations for most work center views. Typically, this is done at the
business role level so that you can set the restrictions once and apply them to
multiple users. Authorizations for certain views can be restricted either to
employees or territories associated with the specific item in a view, or via
assignment of the employee to an organizational unit.
Access contexts bundle context-specific
restriction rules that are assigned to various work center views and you can
choose on the business role level which restriction rule shall be used for
Hybris Cloud for Customer (C4C) and the SAP HANA Cloud Portal for Customer Self
Service will be added to the current company landscape (in the Cloud). C4C will
also have integration with MS Outlook though a simple plug-in, and can be
integrated with BW.
following chart gives a high-level overview of the company master and
transactional data requirements, that will flow.
2.1. SAP ERP and C4C
most existing customers already using SAP On-premise systems, implementing a
cloud solution means leveraging their existing data (both master data and
transaction data). To speed up the process of replicating such data from
customers on premise SAP ERP system to customer’s SAP Cloud for Customer
tenant, SAP has provisioned standard ABAP reports. The reports are designed to
drastically reduce initial load times of your data into SAP Cloud for Customer.
The reports can be accessed in ERP with transaction code COD_INT_MENU.
the following objects an initial load from ERP will be performed in the
Sales Organization Model
Accounts and Account
Address (generated based on account)
Currency conversion (independent
from above objects)
transactional data flow for tickets, deliveries and billing documents will be
handled through the enhancement of the integration flows delivered for field
Sales organization model
The interface should allow replication of the sales organization hierarchy from
ERP. The flow is unidirectional.
In ECC there is a standard report “Load or Resend Organizational Hierarchy”
which can be accessed with transaction code COD_INT_MENU. In this report you can enter the required
sales area data that will be replicated.
Product hierarchy and materials
New materials created in SAP ERP should be replicated. The replication flow is
Before materials can be downloaded, we need to set up the product hierarchy.
However, there is no standard report in SAP ERP for replication of Product
Hierarchy. By default, SAP Cloud for Customer accepts only one hierarchy. There
are two approaches to maintain product categories within that default product
Data upload using

Resend Materials” which can be accessed with transaction code COD_INT_MENU. In this report you can select the materials
that will be replicated.
the initial load of material data from ERP, all the changes made in the source
system are replicated into the target solution during a scheduled, daily run.
The Material Replication Request view provides an overview of the replicated
material with the status of the run and allows you to submit material requests
as required, if you make changes that you need to replicate before the next
Accounts and account addresses
The following account types need to be uploaded:
Custom account types:
International Groups are maintained as Customer Group 3 entries at
customer level in ERP. Upon creation of a new customer group 3 in ERP. The
flow is unidirectional, from ERP.
National Groups are maintained as Customer Group 2 entries at
customer level in ERP. Upon creation of a new customer group 2 in ERP. The
flow is unidirectional, from ERP.
OOS – For the above 2 types there is no standard download program. A custom
flow and assignment program needs to be created or the accounts can be created
and maintained directly. This will only
be needed when Cloud for Sales is implemented.
ERP customer master accounts:
Tracking partner is a special account,
maintained a partner function related to a customer in ERP.. The flow is
unidirectional, from ERP.
Direct accounts should have a unidirectional flow, from
Ship-to parties should have a unidirectional flow, from
Payers should have a unidirectional flow, from
Bill-to parties should
have a unidirectional flow, from ERP.
The 5 types above all have customer account groups and can be downloaded with
the standard report “Load or Resend Customers” which can be accessed with
transaction code COD_INT_MENU. In
this report you can select the accounts that will be replicated.
the above accounts are downloaded, the account addresses will be downloaded
with the standard report “Load or Resend Customer Addresses”
Currency conversion rates
The interface should insure a unidirectional currency conversion rates
replication from ERP.
Import of currency conversion rates can be done either manually or via excel
import into SAP.
ERP SD pricing should be available to determine the ticket value (either
real-time call or download of pricing conditions).
Pricing will not be downloaded, but will be available through a standard real
time call from the ticket to ERP.
The interface should insure a unidirectional ticket replication to ERP. Depending
on the ticket type, a different ERP document should be created (debit memo,
credit memo, and return order).
The standard integration flow provided for field service (see picture below)
will be enhanced to create the correct (custom, existing) credit, debit, return
and free of charge orders.
