    Hi Khalifa,

    According to my experience, the best way is download the role to your local drive and upload it to the destination system or client. Afterwards, you just need to generate the authorization profile.

    You can also do a transport and import, but then there will be some adjustment to do afterwards. For me, it is more complicated.

    Regards,

    Important questions i why build such a big single role? It will be a pain to maintain later as well as building it.

    Maybe you can give s-tcode ranges instead of entering all 6000, or try to add it via the SAP menu tree (providede you need all TRX in a certain area)

    Hi,

    You can import the transactions to role menu.

    -> call PFCg and enter the role name.

    -> goto menu tab and open transaction window.

    -> click f4 in the transaction window -> one pop-up window will come with some transactions -> Click "New selection" button in the bottom of the window -> it will open one more pop-up -> there click arrow button opposite to transaction-> system will open one more popup. here you have options to upload text file or simply you can copy all transactions at a time and upload it.

    I think it s resolved your issue, but can answer my doubts.

    Is these 6000 tcodes related to one job role or mixed?

    These days SOX act is playing a kea role. Think about Segregation of duties.

    It seems like there is no way to load roles from a text file.

    Thanks for your help

      Soma,

      I got this error message :

      With Web Application Server Release 6.40, you cannot create new automated CATT test cases. However, you can still create manual CATT test cases.

      Editing and executing existing automated CATT test cases is still possible. For more information, see the release notes

      thanks

      Osama

    Hello Khalifa,

    1) Enter t-code PFCG

    2) Enter the name of the new activity group/role you are creating and <b>"Save"</b>

    3) Click the <b>"From activity group"</b> button located on the RH side of the screen below the <b>"Copy Menus"</b> section. A search window will pop-up.

    4) Search for the name of the role you wish to copy. I.e., SAP_SDCCN_ALL, Y_<your custom role>_xx, etc...

    5) Select the role you wish to copy by either double-clicking on it or single-clicking on the role and click on the green check.

    6) Now select either the top level of transactions or drill down into the role to be move selective on what you wish to import.

    7) Click on the <b>"Add"</b> button at the bottom of this screen and you have imported everthing in the menu of the selected activity group/role.

    Keep in mind that you need to select an activity group/role that contains a "menu" for this feature to work. If the activity group/role does not contain a menu, you must import from within the Maintain Authorization Data area and import via the assigned profile of the activity group/role you wish to emulate.

    The easiest way is to use the "Import from file" option on the Menu tab in PFCG. There is a note on the required format, but I don't have the note number. I wrote a macro in Excel to convert a list of transactions (and transaction descriptions) and create a properly formatted input file. Send me your email address and I'll send you the macro. <b><email removed by moderator></b>
