Authorization problem, roles with mapped profiles

Hello Every one,

Good evening..

I have few authorization issues which have been requested for our review by auditors.

We found that few roles were mapped with multiple profiles.what could be the possibily to have mutiple profiles to a single role?

Please note that these roles are derived roles,not a composite role & Composite profiles.

Here you go with below examples which might give you a clear view.

Role & profiles Name User id


1) C_PUS_Mang XXXX

(Profiels ## T-D3060077, T-D30600771)




Any assistance and suggessions would be much appriciated.

Many Thanks,

    there is a maximum number of authorizations which can be contained in a profile(99). If this number is reached, the next (sub-)profile is created (automatically in pfcg). that is the explanation for your 1st example.

    Your second example seems to be an inconsistency. Please regenerate the profile to get the correct profile number(s).

    Hi Vinod,

    I totally agree with what Bernhard has said except the fact that the maximum no.of authorizaions that fit in a single profile are more than 99. I hope that around 170 authorizations are permitted in a single profile.

    If the authorizations that are provided in a role crosses the 170 limit, a second profile for the same role will be automatically created while generating the role following a numbering sequence.
