Viewing User What If Analysis

The User What If analysis identifies the risks that surfaced by changing a user's roles.

This analysis shows these key data points:

  • Risk rating - The level of risk associated with the role assignment.

  • Conflict Source - Identifies if the risks are new or pre-existing. The three possible values are:

    • Existed Before Changes - The risk was already present based on the user's previous access.

    • Caused By Changes - This change introduces a new risk.

    • Gone After Changes - The user will no longer have the access that created this risk.

  • Business Function Hits - This shows a total of every single "hit," or authorization object, within the business functions. The different categories for the business function hits are:

    • Existed Before Changes - The user already had access to these authorizations.

    • Caused By Changes - The user will have these new authorizations if the proposed changes are applied.

    • Gone After Changes - The user will no longer have access to these authorizations if the proposed role changes are applied.

Select the Book icon to see more information about the permissions, including the hit source, function code, object, field, and more.

Viewing Single Role What If Analysis

The single role What If analysis identifies the risks that surfaced by adding transaction codes to a role, including these key data points:

    • Existed Before Changes - The risk was already present based on the role's previous access.
