Issue with creating two ESS (WDA) Overviews


I am prototyping ESS (WDA) EHP5 for my client. One of the requirements is to have 2 overviews for 2 groups of employeeds. This can be easily done with ESS Java where you just need to copy iViews and create different roles. However it seems very difficult to achieve this with the EHP5 version. In my case, I have 2 portal roles and groups, and I created a copy of the configurator HRESS_A_Menu (ZHRESS_A_Menu). I also save the launchpad ESS under a different role (ZESS) so I have 2 copies of the launchpad. Odd thing is there seems to be no way to copy a launchpad so the best thing to do is to use the SAVE AS function. So I have 2 configurator and 2 launchpads for the overview. I created a copy of the overview iView and pointed to ZHRESS_A_Menu configurator, which is configured to use ZESS role for launchpad. The copied overview is assigned to custom role.

However, any change I made in the ESS launch pad and the standard configuration can also be seen by users with the custom role.

Do I need to make a copy of the component in addition to the configurator? How can I do this since it is not displayed in SE80?

What else configuration is needed to achieve or this is simply impossible with this version?

Pls advise and I appreciate.
