Functions are the building blocks of access risks. They define a collection of one or more tasks that an employee needs to complete to perform a specific goal.

These tasks are called Actions.


Functions have the following attributes:

Function Attributes



Function ID

The identification code for the function.


A short, plain text description of the function that identifies the nature of the function to users.

Business Process

A value that defines to which business process this function belongs. It is used for categorization purposes.

Analysis Scope

A parameter that determines if the function applies only to a single system (for example, SAP), or to multiple systems.


When you define a function, you associate one or more actions to the function. Each of these actions has an associated permission (security object) that defines the scope of access for the action.
