Role Menu has been removed as web item, the suggestion for replacement is a solution within the portal.
But: What to do, if the customer does not use the portal as UI neither the SAP GUI but simply calls the web reports via URLs ?
Of course a possibility would be to have all relevant web reports contained in the user's favorites of his browser. But that is not very nice. Idea would be to have a favorite leading to the role menu, and from there the user can choose his relevant web reports.
