Function documentation Roles  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


Roles are collections of activities used in business scenarios. Users access the transactions, reports, or Web-based applications through user menus. The SAP Standard contains a large number of predefined roles.

When a role is assigned to a user, the menu for that role appears when the user logs on to the system. The allocation of roles also ensures integrity of the business data. Authorization profiles are generated to restrict the activities of users in the SAP System, regarding the activities of the roles.

The Workplace provides users with a Portal to perform their tasks via a Web browser. Roles can be assigned here as well.

Users can change the roles assigned to them as needed. They can create and manage Favorites.

By adding or deleting menu entries, the system administrator can tailor the user menu to the personal requirements of each user.

For more information, contact your system administrator.
