Enterprise Portal Roles and Group
All the user and roles tasks of Enterprise portal can be performed using User Management Engine (UME). UME is integrated to SAP NetWeaver Application Server. In UME, you define UME actions to apply authorizations. UME actions are JAVA permissions to define the user roles and they can be further assigned to Portal roles.
User Management Engine performs user authorization to ensure that users have the correct UME actions assigned to them before providing access to iViews and functions in Enterprise Portal.
For each portal role, there is UME action defined in the User Management Engine. Following table lists down all the key portal roles and corresponding UME actions.
|Key Portal Roles||UME Actions|
|Delegated User Administrator||UME.Manage_Users UME.Manage_Role_Assignment|
|Every User Core Role||UME.Manage_My_Profile|
|Standard User Role||UME.Manage_My_Profile|
|Super Administrator||UME.AclSuperUser UME.Manage_All|
Following UME actions are defined only for Enterprise Portal roles −
Comparison between UME & Portal Roles
In NetWeaver portal, both UME roles and Portal roles can be managed by Portal administrators. UME roles contain JAVA actions; however, portal role contains access to iViews, folders, and systems.
Following table lists the key differences between UME and Portal Roles −
|Portal Roles||UME Roles|
|Used to manage the portal content - iViews, work sets, folders, etc.||UME actions are sets of Java permissions.|
|This is used to define how the content is grouped together and how it is displayed in the portal. By assigning a portal role, you define which content a user sees in the portal.||This is used to define the authorizations that a user has to run applications on the J2EE engine.|
|When you assign a portal role to a user or group, they get end-user permission on the role.||This provides access to applications on the J2EE engine.|
|They are created in the Role editor of Portal Content Studio.||They are created using Identity Management.|
