Why does multiple roles show up on a user profile with different dates in the valid from/valid to date column? Not that it's hurting any thing but it fills up the columns with unnecessary data? For example;
WMMGR 01/09/1998 06/19/2000
WMMGR 06/20/2000 12/31/9999
LPCDSPO 01/08/1998 07/18/2000
LPCDSPO 07/19/2000 12/31/9999
I delete the 2000 date when I see it. How can I keep the duplicate roles appearing on the users profile?
It seems that the user master records is not being adjusted. Have you scheduled report PFCG_TIME_DEPENDENCY to run daily? You can also run transaction PFUD to check and update authorization profiles and user master records.
I'd like to know what R/3 release and kernel level your system has.
I had an experience once in R/3 4.5B using kernel patch 584 that prevented me from changing user accounts and the activity group appeared listed dozens of times. After a long troubleshooting process, I found out it was the kernel the culprit. I updated it and everything worked fine. There was nothing the matter with the user master records.
