This topic provides information on how to maintain BlueWorx users.
The BlueWorx user record is only used to control and filter what data the user receives. SAP transactional rights and processing is still subject to SAP security. The allocation of such permissions is a SAP Security role and this needs to be done as appropriate for the users and their job functions. Therefore all BlueWorx users must have a SAP user account and associated SAP User roles and Authorisations for all functions that they use from within BlueWorx and any SAP GUI/ Business Client functions they use. In this way BlueWorx user profiles can be managed by plant maintenance specific administrators, as operational needs dictate, and not 'cross over' into SAP security.
