roles are disabled for my username.

I have changed the settings in "user group maint." from administrator to "engineer" because of which most of the activities on left pane of the screen are lost. How to retrieve it back to "administrator" again?

In UME,  under ”assigned roles” for this user, administrator activities have been assigned as attached. Still the problem doesn’t solve.

Need your help on this.

P.S:  "user group maintenance" activity is not visible on left pane as the user group is now "engineer".

    You should be able to do the following:

    1. Log into SAP me with the SITE_ADMIN user

    2. Open User Maintenance and retrieve the NEW user you created and assigned the Engineer role

    3. On the User Group tab of that user assign the Administrator User group and remove the Engineer one, then save.

    4. Log out of SAP ME then log back in as the new user.  All activities should now be available again.

    Hope that helps

    Was SITE_ADMIN user, which you changed, the only user assigned to administrators gorup? If no, just login as the other administrator user and change it back.

    If yes, I would correct data in the database to make it work again. In particular USER_GROUP_MEMBER table. There you need to correct USER_GROUP_BO and HANDLE fields for you user -> set ADMINISTRATORS instead of ENGINEERS.

    Activitiy availability in Activiy Manager tree is controlled by settings in User Group Maintenance, no need to check User Roles in NWA, UME.

    Tables mentioned above are in WIP database that is used by ME. Please, do not correct any data in NW database
