3426950 - Is it possible to create roles in test and transport them to production even if they already exist in production system?

Symptom

  • Would it be possible to create roles in test and transport them to production even if they already exist in production? 
  • You have created some of the roles in the production system and those roles are not created in test environment, roles created in production allowing you to modify only in production system which is not recommended by SAP.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Resolution

It is possible to create roles in test and transport them to production even if they already exist in production, this will overwrite the Business Roles and the restrictions in Production system and also it will not change any Business User Assignment.

This process is expected, Business users do not get erased, and the spaces get assigned properly, there will be no issues with other assignments like restrictions.
