Federation Portal Remote Role Assignment


We have implemented Federation Setup between 3 portals in our landscape.

Portal 1 - EP 7.0 SP15 (Producer)

Portal 2 - EP 7.0 SP15 (Consumer)

Portal 3 - EP 7.0 SP20 (Producer)

Our requirement is to have remote role assignment in Consumer portal. This works fine with except one issue. The role that is assigned as a remote one in consumer for a user requires the role assignment in producer as well for the same user. Else the tabs are not visible.

Is it mandatory in federation Remote role setup that the roles need to be assigned in both Producer and Consumer? If not I am having an issue.

    I don't believe that you need to assign the user to the roles in both producer and consumer, but you do need to make certain permission settings. Refer to the section "Permissions to Assign on the Producer Portal Before or After Remote Role Assignment is Performed" in the following:

    Hope this helps,
