Subject:

The steps here describe how to create a Segregation of Duties (SOD) Group ID, an Exclusion ID, and how to review the SOD reports.

Information:

These steps may be used in different scenarios, but the example here is specific to Payables Management.

We have already identified where there is a Segregation of Duty (SOD) conflict in Microsoft Dynamics GP.

  • Users who enter Payables Management transactions may not post the batch or create a payment.
  • Users who post Payables Management batches and create payments may not enter Payable Management transactions.

Create the SOD Group IDs

This may be done manually or by importing an existing Security Task. Importing the Security Task is efficient and helpful if you are basing your SOD on your Security Tasks.
