Users and Roles

Role
MDO works on role-based ownership. The information a user has access to is determined by the permissions/authorizations allocated to the users assigned role(s).  

For the Vendor process, MDO provides the following set of standard roles: 

  1. Vendor Initiator – The Initiator is responsible for initiating a vendor request by providing all the vendor information required to set up a vendor in accordance with the business process. 
  2. Vendor Reviewer – Responsible for reviewing the vendor information and has the authority to send back the request for correction in case of missing or incorrect information. 
  3. Vendor Approver – Reviews and finalizes the request to integrate the vendor request with SAP.

User
A user is a person who has access to the application.  All users created in MDO have unique credentials that can be used to identify any task they perform within the application. All users are assigned role(s) as per their responsibilities or location. What information a user has access to or what information a user can change can be controlled by the users assigned role(s).
