Leveraging HR Security in S3 with Landmark GHR
I am curious as to how other organizations handled, or plan to handle, user security on the S3 side when implementing various systems over to landmark. We’re an on premise site and have a full set of Roles and security rules defined in S3. Now we are implementing GHR; moving our HR and PA systems over into Landmark under GHR. I’ve been told that our plan is to build GHR on landmark as our ‘system of record’ and then use BOD’s to populate data back into S3. Our users will still be able to access the HR and PA forms on the S3 side but once GHR is implemented, as Inquiry ONLY. This will require a lot of changes or new development within our Lawson security and I am trying to determine my best course of action to accomplish this. Thoughts and suggestions are all welcome.

So I went to the newly added line and under the ERRORS tab, it shows "Can only maintain Service Agreements here". What happened and how do I fix it? Thanks. Read More
