    Be sure that your upload file is in text format (.txt).

    Change the "Upload Directory" entry to server_name\sap_temp\ROLEIMPORT. Do not include "
    " before the server name as it is predefined. The way you have it now reads "

    ursula\sap_temp\ROLEIMPORT" which leads to the error you are receiving.

    Hope this helps

      Hi Michael,

      I am not able to import the SAP roles properly.

      I downloaded the roles from backend properly. But while importing them I am getting a list of backend roles and against each of them following message <b>Error in processing role infomation. Role not imported</b>.

      What could be the possible mistake? I have set <b>Upload Directory</b> = ursula\sap_temp.

      One more problem, while creating a new role I am able to reach successfully till the risk analysis phase. After that, as soon as I click on approval , i am getting message <b>Error in creating request</b>.

      I suppose the control should go to Access Enforcer from here.I have already set AC Workflow URL for role approval in Configuration -> miscellaneous.

      Thanks in advance!
