Provide Authorisations to the users:

In order to enable the user to access the various transactions, it is essential that the users have the
correct set of authorisations. Setting of authorisations for the users based on their job roles. An
authorisation tool is used to create the user authorisations. Once the authorisations have been
created, profiles are created and the authorisations are attached to them. Each profile can have
many such authorisations attached to them. The profiles are created based on the role definition
of the user in the company. After the authorisations and profiles are created, user ids are created
and the profiles are attached to the user profiles. Each user id could have multiple user profiles
attached to them. For example, if we create a user profile for a business head, then that user id
could have profiles relating to various departments / job definitions attached to it.
