There are two steps involved:

  1. Create a Permission Group (if the desired group of users does not already exist). This group will contain the users that you want to grant SAP Jam access to.

  2. Create a Permission Role Here you specify what permissions users in this role should have. Then you add the Permission Group to the role.

Step 1: Create a Permission Group

  1. In BizX go to 'Admin Center' section
  2. Under 'Manage Employees' hover the mouse over 'Set User Permissions' and click on 'Manage Permission Groups':

Please Note:

  • This group of users will have SAP Jam access after the next nightly/Detla sync between BizX and SAP Jam. Please see KBA 2152655 for information on the nightly syncs.
  • If still there are some issues, please ask support to verify the BizX-SAP Jam integration for your instance. Please make sure to provide your system details, company ID, Support access username & users affected.
  • For Non-RBP (Role Based Permission) Users: log in as a Bizx Administrator -> In Set User Permission section search for SAP Jam Access Permission -> From Here you can grant or revoke permission for group of users


New JAM users will reflect in your JAM instance only after they log in and enter the instance by themselves. If they do not log in, even if they have JAM access role and permission, they cannot be searched in JAM and their information won't be available.
