When trying to grant access to HR Extra Information Types to different responsibilities, one of the limitations in HR is that the only responsibilities which appear in the standard form are ones which are related to HR. For example, querying “Service” in the Information Type Security form (PERWSITS) returns no rows because HR can’t see that responsibility:
So, if you are working on a system where you need to grant access to HR information types to responsibilities which are not within the HR area (e.g. CRM-based responsibilities), then there is no obvious way to do it. In this kind of situation, there may well tend to be over-use of responsibilities since an HR and CRM responsibility is now needed to provide the access.
The way to reduce this duplication is to add the seeded HR security menu to the seeded Service menu as follows. Using the System Administrator responsibility, navigate to Application > Menu and query the menu CSX_CUSTOMER_SUPPORT. Add a new entry for the submenu UK HRMS SECURITY:
Once you have saved the new menu, navigate to the Service responsibility and you will have access to the form to enable you to map access to the information types:
Now when you open the form, you can easily map the required access. The screenshot below shows adding different information types to the seeded Service responsibility:
