3075803 - Access Manage Data via Migrated Object Alert


When accessing certain Objects via Manage Organization, Pay and Job Structures - if the Object has been migrated to MDF, the link in the Alert message allows redirection to Manage Data even if user does not have Manage Data permissions.


Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


Employee Central - Role Based Permissions

Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to: Manage Organization, Pay and Job Structures
2. Select an Object that has been migrated to MDF, e.g. Legal Entity
3. Alert is displayed advising this Object is now migrated to MDF and contains a redirect link
4. Click link and get redirected to Manage Data even if you do not have permissions to access Manage Data


This is expected system behavior.


There is no way to change this behavior. 

The reason this occurs is so that permissions roles and groups do not need to be altered after a Foundation Object is migrated to MDF.

Instead this allows access to the Object via current permission settings (i.e. the role & group that provided access to Manage Organization, Pay and Job Structures)

IMPORTANT: This does not result in access to any other MDF Object. When the redirect link is used, the only available Object will be the migrated Object.
