IAM Information System App

SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition contains reporting applications that provide insightful information with regard to business users and business roles.

The IAM Information System app displays an overview of business users in your system and the business roles and restrictions that are assigned to them. It also provides information about the usage of business roles, business catalogs, business users and restrictions, and how they are related.

If you want to look up more information about a business role, derived business role, business user, business catalog, business role template, or restriction, you can jump directly to the respective app by clicking the entity.

Also, you can use this app for administrative tasks as part of your daily work.

IAM Key Figures App

With the IAM Key Figures app, you can get a quick overview of the critical issues for your business users and business roles. You can, for example, check if business users are locked or have too many business roles assigned. The relevant information is displayed in detailed charts so that you can view the required figures at a glance.
