2085821 - How to Automate the Assignment of Approver Role During Employee Replication


When you are replicating employee from SAP ERP to Cloud for Travel and Expense System , you want to add additional role for example Approver other than Traveler role.

However this additional role assignment is not present in standard replication report OTM_TRIGGER_EMPL_REPL_CE.  


Reproducing the Issue

Login to the ERP System and start the employee replication with the standard replication report. A field to maintain role is not available.


You have not implemented the BAdi OTM_EMPL_BUSINESS_ROLES in order to assign additional roles to an employee.


To manage the BAdi implementations call transaction SE18 (BAdI Builder) in SAP ERP and maintain the BAdI OTM_EMPL_BUSINESS_ROLES.

The BAdi belongs to the enhancement spot OTM_EMPLOYEE_REPLICATION which contains all BAdi relevant for the employee replication.
