When using Workplace as the central system in a CUA environment, is there any way to prevent particular roles from appearing in the Workplace Launchpad? For example, we want a power user with lots of access through the GUI to only be able to see their ESS role through the Workplace web browser.
The easy anwser is NO. The launchpad will display all user's roles. But as a technical person, I think this is quite possible although I don't have time to investigate the possibility, and also such possibility may also incur high costs in terms of custom development or modifications of SAP standards. So you may want to take the easy approach and think other ways to accomplish your goal.
