SAP Business Bydesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the business role ABC
  2. Navigate to the tab Assigned Business Users
  3. Select Update Users
  4. The assigned business user remains In Progress and does not have the role settings. The associated update run might be shown as Completed after a while, but without Result, and no Application Log is available



The business user is not only assigned to business role ABC, but also to business role XYZ which is obsolete und causing inconsistencies.

(ABC and XYZ represent business roles).


De-assign business role XYZ from the business user and repeat the access rights update of role ABC.
