Users must be created and roles assigned to user master records before you can use the SAP System.

A user can only log on to the system if he or she has a user master record. A user menu and authorizations are also assigned to the user master record via one or more roles.

Roles are collections of activities which allow a user to use one or more business scenarios of an organization. The transactions, reports and Web-based applications in the roles are accessed using user menus. User menus should only contain the typical functions in the daily work of a particular user.

The integrity of business data is also ensured by the assignment of roles. Authorization profiles are generated which restrict the activities of users in the SAP System, depending on the activities in the roles.

Please look at the below link for more info on Roles.

Make sure to go througfh the different links on the lefthand side of the screen to know more about User and role maintenance.
