Assigning roles to users

The Central User Administration facility enables us to assign the same role to a multiple target systems for a particular user, however if we want to use the mySAP.com Workplace this feature is effectively disabled by the fact that each role must have a single target system assigned to enable the Launchpad to be built (Function module NAVIGATION_USER_MENU_READ). Is there any way around this restriction?

I don't know any shortcut to this, except maybe modify the functional Navigation_user_menu_read. I have customer done it for other purposes. For your case, it's much more complicated. I'd kindly suggest you wait for the next release of SAP Portal for much more flexible user navigation, which should be available soon.
