Legal Entity

A Legal Entity is a data unit that allows Buyers to establish relationships between various data elements such as business units, cost centers, sites, and users in the SAP Fieldglass application. They’re combinations of associations used to limit and enforce the manner in which those items can interact with each other.

Play the video to learn how Legal Entities contribute to corporate structures in SAP Fieldglass.

Navigating the Legal Entity Admin Object

Select the Legal Entity admin object from the Company Structure section of the admin menu to view the list of legal entities associated to WorkingNet’s tenant.

Create a Legal Entity

WorkingNet has formed a new product unit, called NetAlysis, to develop network diagnostic software for its networking equipment.

A company profile has already been created in the application to accommodate the new division, but WorkingNet has decided that hiring managers within NetAlysis should only be able to access cost centers that are associated with NetAlysis and not with other units within WorkingNet.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you’ll create a legal entity to limit access to the NetAlysis cost center.
