    The "Generate derived roles" button only appears in PFCG if you maintain/display a master role. If the button is not available and the menu entry under "Authorizations >> Adjust derived >> Generate derived roles" is grayed out, this most likely means you are not in a master role.

    Missing authorizations (e.g. no change access for the derived roles via S_USER_AGR) should not be the root cause since you would get an according error message once you click the generate derived roles button.

    To confirm that you are indeed in a master role, go back to the Role screen and check the inheritance hierarchy (Role >> Inheritance (Ctrl + Shift + F3)).

    • I'm not sure I get this question? Where does it say generate derive role? To create a derived role, you create a new single role, then in this single you place the Master role name in the description and then generate the derive role from there.

      To my knowledge the only time you would be able is if you are already in a derived role, you cant derive a derive role from a derived role.

      The generate derived role could be greyed out if you are in any other environment but DEV.
