Portal roles uploaded from R/3

Hi all,

Right now, when we assign a user to a role in R/3, we have to upload the role to the portal so the user gets the role in the portal. Is there something that can be put in place so roles can be automatically uploaded to the portal nightly? For instance, I have a role with a launch pad attached to it. If I add a user to the role in R/3, the only way that the portal is going to know that they have that role is if I upload it to the portal with the user mappings. I want to be able to automate this some how.

We are running Portal 7.31 and ERP 6 EhP6.

Does any one have any suggestions into how something like this can be accomplished?

Hope this makes sense.

    You can configure UME to use AS ABAP as Data Source. Portal will get role assignments automatically, ABAP roles will be visible as groups in UME.
