Move CUA master that uses composite roles

Hello,

The last few days I have been trying to move a CUA master from an old 6.20 to a 7.01 system (both SM). It is a new system, not an upgrade.

Before touching the setup of the old CUA setup, I did a mass transport of all the composite roles, including generated profiles and user assignment.

I then set up the new master as a CUA master and connected the slave clients to the new master.

Imported the users from the clients.

And then I imported the transport with the composite roles.

It it almost perfect. The derived single role assignment from the old master was imported from the clients. Meaning that in function everything is as it was before. But the single roles are not assigned through the composite roles. If I check the user in the CUA master I cannot see the assignment of composite roles. But in PFCG the users are listed.

I have been testing and have discovered that if I removed the users from the composite role in PFCG and add them again, assigns the composite role to the user as it is supposed to be.

I have now found note 1385715 which states that transport of user assignments is not supported.

I cannot find a valid automated approach. In the productive setup there is 500+ composite roles, so a manual approach must be avoided.

What documentation have I missed?

BR,

Thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    Please help me understand few things.

    What was the need of transporting composite roles from old CUA to new CUA? As CUA only contains the mapping of child systems - users - roles. Unless CUA system is being used for any other purpose.

    But the single roles are not assigned through the composite roles. If I check the user in the CUA master I cannot see the assignment of composite roles. But in PFCG the users are listed.

    Can you confirm in which system you are checking this?? Is it the child system??

      I solved the issue by adding the client systems to the CUA and then retrieving the users from the client systems. After that I remoce the CUA setup, imports the transport with the composite roles, setup CUA again and does a composite role comparison and then it is working!

    A few things to check and try...

    1. In PFCG and SU01 run the user compare.

    2. PFUD on the affected roles.

    2. Run SE16->AGR_USERS on a few users to check. Sometimes SU01 in CUA does not show the true role assignment.

    Good Luck!
