Role Concept in SAP Enterprise Portal 5.0 and 6.0
SAPs role concept began with the introduction of the profile generator, which was available with R/3 Release 3.1G, and which was used only as a tool for the administration of authorizations. The SAP role concept was continuously developed in subsequent releases right up to the introduction of the mySAP Workplace. A mature form was available with Release R/3 4.6x and mySAP Workplace 2.11. This release merged personalized menu information using roles for the first time. The mySAP Workplace enhanced the role concept in the portal area.
