New and/or Adjusted Functionality

  1. openERP Import - multiple descriptions same Diagram/Process Object (TICKET 1806)
    When importing authorizations any Master Data object which is included in the import file, but not present in the Master Data, is created. In the situation that the Import file include a Diagram / Process code and more than one description is found the same Diagram / PRocess, the import failed.
    The import (Open-ERP) is adjusted to accept the fact that there could be multiple descriptions for the same (new) diagram/process code, by taking one of the descriptions available (random select) and create the diagram/process with this description.
    To easily maintain the Diagram / Process description in the master diagram grid (Client Application) a new CSV import is included, through which the diagram description can be updated based on this CSV file.

  2. Resolution Rule Web-Portal Report (TICKET 1809) 
    A new web portal report has been added in the SoD Administration section.

    This report shows the Resolution Rules with the following information:
    1. Code
    2. Description
    3. Scanning Mode (A/M)
    4. Expired (Yes/No)Category
    5. Chart Category
    6. Owner
    7. Division
    8. Resolution Status
    9. Resolution Defined (Yes/No)
    10. Resolution Applied (Yes/No)
    11. Delete/Purge (Yes/No)
In the web portal report a contextual menu is available, providing access to additional information. This will open a web portal report per Resolution Rule which shows also the Scope SQL Query and an image of the Resolution Rule Scope as defined in the Resolution Rule. The image of the Resolution Rule is created automatically when saving the Resolution Rule after creation of after editing the Resolution Rule.
To allow existing clients to create all these images without having to open and save each Resolution Rule separately, an option is added in the Client Resolution grid Actions section. This process will open each Resolution Rule and create the image and might take several minutes at which time the client is not available for other work.

  1. Employee Group Category (TICKET 1811)
    A new attribute is added to the object Employee Group. This attribute is called the Employee Group Category and can used for Categorizing the Employee Groups.
    The Employee Group Category is
    1. Alphanumeric
    2. String (no backend table)
    3. Multiple Employee Groups can have the same Employee Group Category
The Employee Group Category is used at the following places in the Application:
EZ-Compliance Client
  1. Periodic Access Review  – Scope Definition
    In the Periodic Access Review Scope definition the Employee Group Category attribute is available for scope creation.
  2. Access Change Request XML Message
    In the incoming ACR XML message the Employee Group Category attribute is added in the
    1. Authorizations section
    2. Users Section
  3. Resolution Rule Scope

  4. Copy Data from Repo to Repo|
    In the copying of data from one Repository to another Repository the Employee Group Category is also copied, where applicable
    1. Main Components / Employee Group
    2. Resolution Rules Scope
    3. PAR Scope
  5. Note:
    In the scope definition of the PAR and the Resolution Rule, the attribute Employee Group category added. Since the Employee Group Category is not an attribute of the authorization (and thus not of the conflict) the path used for resolving the Employee Group Category is based on the Authorization Employee Group (1+2). The Employee Group Category as defined for the Authorization Employee Group is used and not on the Employee Group Category linked to the Employee Group which is linked to the Employee. There are no changes to any of the current web-portal reports
