Role Transport Delays

Dear SAP Security Gurus,

We are having delays while putting roles in to transport. If we have 50 or more roles it takes a long time and finally it gives a short dump. Can you please throw some light on this issue? We are having a hard time when we have to transport many roles.

Thanks,

Karthik.

    Karthik,

    Its quite difficult to answer your question. since it depend on transport configuration.

    Check with the basis guy why role transport delays are happening?. Is it beacuse of support packs / any upgrades needed for the system?.

    Did u implement a QA approval process in your QAS system.?

    Check the shortdump error in D. try resolve that. If it is working fine in Q and P then there may be some memory issue or table space issue. Take a look at theshortdump description in ST22. share the explanation given there with Basis team.

    But still you can chcek with Basis if you have the settings available and get it done by them.

    Thanks,

    Sri

    Hi,

    The number of roles doesn't matter when it comes to what it contains (more authorization data), try to do it seperately make it 2/4 (again depends on the size of roles) seperate TR & Import.

    Regards;

    Hi Karthik,

    While creating Transport request for roles, you will get an popup of "Select the objects that are to be used when transporting the role" its best practice to remove both check options available.

    1. User Assignment

    2. Personalization

    Uncheck both options and try once again, I hope it will solve your problem of delay.

    Regards,

    Firoz.

    Hello Karthik,

    at which part of transport creation you get the problem? Propably you'll find more information in the time_out dump....

    Some years ago there have been problems with AGR_CHECK_ALL_AGRS_3 (checks consistency of roles).... this check can be switched off in ssm_cust with DUP_REPORT_OFF = YES. its worth a try....

    If you switch it off, you should schedule it then seperately, for instance as weekly job.

    Hi Karthik,

    Some of the questions which can help you in troubleshooting:-

    Are you getting dump while creating a transport(importing roles into a transport) or while releasing it??

    Also the 50 roles(as you have mentioned) involves composite roles as well??

    Are you including the single roles included in the composite roles as well??

    Did you analyze the dumb??

    What is the time out set for a dialog work process and a background work process(take help from Basis team)??

    Send us the answers of all these questions which will help us in better understanding of your issue.

    Karthik,

    What feedback have your Basis team given you?

    A system that is set up well should have no problem with 50 roles unless they are very large.
