Identity Management - Roles and Privileges

Starting in January 2019, IDM will be used to provision access to SAP systems, including both S/4 (Finance) and SuccessFactors (EC and ECP). IDM will be the system of record for who has been granted what security roles (business roles/privileges) across those systems.

  • IDM will provision access to an individual Position Number rather than directly to an employee.
  • When one employee is removed from a position number and another employee is assigned to that position number, IDM will automatically provision the roles assigned to that position number to the new employee
Role Request

To request or change a role, email The email should contain Position ID and the role name needed or edited. If the new role is only needed for a limited time, please include the end date.
