Role Deletion

Hi

I would like to delete a role from the DEV system and then have the deletion moved to Q and then P system.

I have gone through http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/e4/15e48efd6c11d296430000e82de14a/frameset.htm

This reads "If you want the deletion to be transported, place the role objects in a transport request before deleting. To delete the role in a system linked by RFC (like a component system in Workplace), choose Role ® Distribute deletion."

I am not sure as to how this needs to be done. How does one place the role objects in a transport request?

If you have had a role deleted and then transported it, let me know how you have done it.

    This can be done simple:

    1 add the role to a transport in DEV

    2 delete the role in the dev system

    3 distribute the transport through the landscape

    in all systems the role will be deleted

    Goto pfcg-> utilities-> mass transport

    Create the transport for all the roles from here.

    Now,

    go ahead and delete the roles.

    After this is done, release the transport from se01 or se09/se10.

    I assume that the landscape of transport(configfuration) i.e. Dev to Q and Q to Prod is already defined.

    Hope it helps!

    Hi,

    Try another option

    in PFCG go to Enter the name of the Role.

    Go to Role tab----->Distribute deletion. or use ShiftCtrlF12.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    • Hi Manas,

      thanks for this tip; I haven't tried it but will explore this option as well from now. I've been working in fairly complex landscapes, where you have loads of systems down the transport path (QA, regression, Pre-prod, prod, across several regions...), and in that case, it makes more sense to properly release a transport instead of logging on to each client when deleting. But your solution seems perfect when dealing with small landscapes (or cases where you want to remove one role in one specific system).

      Regards,

    what if the role to be deleted is required in only one system and that happens to be production and the role is not in DEV and QA?

      Ehm, log on to said system, start PFCG, enter role name and delete?

      All the pop-ups you get are 'only' warnings and roles are not customizing and therefor have no issue with system settings.
