SAPJSF user role - does it have to be SAP delivered name ?

Hi Folks,

Security question - We are upgrading to EP 7.0 . The SAPJSF user ( in ABAP system) has the role SAP_BC_JSF_COMMUNICATION_RO.

Does the Portal need this exact named role ? If so ..can it be changed in the

Portal end ?

Our policy with roles is not to use the SAP delivered - so we copy and change

to our standard . Will the portal recognize a different role on the SAPJSF user.

This note got me thinking on this 908911

Thanks for input ! Dan

Hi Dan,

The role is managed in your ECC system and you can make a Z (your own version ) version of the role.

We have this live in prod use our version of the role.

Thanks,

Dan,

It's an ABAP role, not a portal role. There is nothing to change in the portal.

Ah, yes. It does read the role. It displays this role in the UME user interfaces as a group to which users are assigned. You can then assign portal roles to this "group."

See the picture in this document:

I don't think so. If you copy the role and use another name it should work as well.
