  • Before SAP had roles, they had SAP profiles. Because of the data design, a profile could only have a limited number of authorizations. Roles are still only a technical layer on top of profiles, and profiles still have the original limitations

    Consequently, when a large role has too many authorizations for one profile, a second profile is generated and assigned. This is merely a technical feature. Your auditors should focus their evaluation on the roles assigned. There are other technical considerations, but this answer should be sufficient for almost all situations.
