Process documentation Distribution of the Organizational Management Model  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You want to distribute the organizational management model (OM model) that you have created in your HR system to one or more systems (see scenarios) to use it to perform indirect role assignment in these systems.

You should usually only distribute the required objects when distributing the OM model. In this description, only the objects required for user administration are distributed.

The distribution process is dependent on the following factors, which you must also consider later when making the filter settings for the OM model:

     Maintaining the role assignments in the OM model: If you make the role assignments in the OM model in the source system and distribute them together with the model, use authorizations in the receiving system to ensure that no user can change the OM model. If you perform the distribution without links to roles, you should still use authorizations to ensure in the receiving system that no user can change the objects of the OM model. Only the role assignments may be changed.

     Existence of the Employee organization object type: If at least one of the target systems does not recognize the employee object type (that is, it is not an HR system), the assignment of position to employee must be replaced by the assignment of position to user during the distribution process. To do this, create a Customer Exit that adds the position ‑ user relationships in addition to the existing position ‑ employee ‑ user relationships. The ALE exit filters then delete the relationships that cannot be used, depending on the target system.


     The 0105 infotype for the employee is maintained.

     You have ensured that the same active plan version has the value 01 both in the HR system and in the target system. This parameter is in table T77S0, group PLOGI, and semantic abbreviation PLOGI.

     The users used in the OM structure of the source system must exist in all target systems (through CUA distribution or client copy), since only the relationships of the structure, but not those of the objects themselves are distributed.

Process Flow

If you are distributing the OM model with the user assignment from an HR system to an HR system and a non-HR system, the process flow is as follows:


Create the OM distribution model in the HR system.When doing this, ensure that you maintain infotype 0105 in particular.

       1.      Generate partner profiles in the HR system and in the CUA central systems.

If one of the target systems does not recognize the Employee object type, create an outbound filter with customer exit in the HR system.

So that you can later distribute only the changed data of the OM model, activate the change pointers and, if necessary, write the change pointers for Infotype 0105 (for target systems that do not recognize the Employee object type).
