This is the ninth in our review of the top 10 most used reports which are ERP agnostic, and sharing why they should be in all of our customer's toolkits.
Useful Report #9: User Access Report
The ninth most commonly used report in our Fastpath tools is User Access Report.
A report in Fastpath that I really love is User Access. User Access provides information about the access granted to a specific user. Unlike a segregation of duties report, access reports just show the facts. They report on security as it exists.
The User Access report is especially useful for ad hoc reporting. For example, if a user who left the company is found to have had excessive access to Vendors, the next question is often, “Who else has access to Vendors and at what level?” User Access is perfect for this.
In our example, we select the Vendors object and retrieve a list of users with access to vendors and their access type. The specific object and access types vary based on individual ERP systems, but the core concept is the same for all systems.
