SAP Component structure in ESS:

In general ESS means Employee Self Service. This means everything which can be done by every single employee on his own data is ESS. But the SAP component structure is a bit more complex in this area.

A good idea (completely independent from ESS) to figure out the correct component in SAP is always via:

  • Documentation (Normally the component is mentioned there).
  • Related SAP notes for that topic (Every SAP note belongs to a component).
  • Checking the attributes for the SAP package where this ABAP coding is part of (Every package is part of a component).

However, here is a list of components related to ESS in SAP:

WD ABAP area:

PA-ESS-XX-WDA, PA-ESS-XX

Country independent personnel administration. Bank data, Address data, etc... (Sometimes it is very difficult to know whether it is country independent or not)

PA-ESS-DE / PA-ESS-US / PA-PA-??

Country dependent personnel administration. There are two special components for Germany and US. For all other countries the PA-PA-?? component is used.
