    Hi Charu,

    There is no need to create all roles through ERM again. You can sync all the roles to RAR, peform risk analysis for roles on them and mitigate them if required. The new roles can surely be generated through ERM from now on.

    Hope it helps.

      Hi Team

      I have implemented the Master Derive Relationshilp for Some similar Roles across the Geos.

      I am able to add authorization objects manually into derieved Roles ( as well as Master Roles) in backend by using PFCG.

      But there is no such option in ERM for derieve roles.(but only for master Roles).For derieve Roles i can only enable/ disable the existing values.

      Any suggestions.

      Best regards,

    Hi Charu,

    Please assign the necessary RFC authorizations to the user to be able to create the role in backend. You will find all the required authorizations to be assigned in the Security guide of Access Controls.

    Once you assign the necessary authorizations to the user, you should be able to generate roles.

      Thanks Alpesh.

      One more query.

      I have already imported all the Roles and have performed Risk Analysis.

      Now should i use ERM for getting clean or staying clean?

      Do i need to create each role through ERM once again or the NEW roles created henceforth should be created using ERM.

      Please suggest.

      Best regards,
