Transport roles (with assigned group) containing folders and iviews


This message was in the BI forum before and I think that it suits here better.

I created a portal role which is contained in a folder X under Portal Content. This portal role is associated with a particular ABAP menu-role by means of Assigned Groups. When I transported the folder X with all dependent objects from Dev to QA, the portal role appeared but the Assigned Groups is empty. Another words, the association between portal role and the ABAP menu-role could not be transported. How can Associated Groups in a Portal Role be transported?

Then I also tried to do the following steps:

1. Export and import portal contents which include the whole structure with folders, roles and iviews under each role.

2. Export and import the same roles as user management data

The result from 1 was that the whole structure including the roles is imported; however none of the portal role contains the associated assigned group.

The result from 2 was that the UME roles with assigned group are imported as separat objects.

Now, the same role appears both as portal role without assigned group and the UME object with assigned group. But, there is no connection between 1 and 2. That means that I cannot use 2 anyway.

Therefore, I still have to manuelly modify 1 with assigned role once again after importing step 1. Is there a way to import 1 with the associated assigned group without any manuel modification?

Thank you in advance for any helpful advice.

Best regards,
