Can Profiles be deleted?

Postby ak4sap » Thu Oct 31, 2002 6:49 pm

Hi all,
I have to give a user some profiles for just limited no. of days.
Is there a timestamp feature, that could just assign the profile for 3 days or so and delete the profile automatically?
How do we do that?
Please be aware, that I dont have to delete the user!

If you created the profile manually then there is not time stamp. To let the
user access a profile for a limited amount of time you need to do the

1. Create an activity group and generate the profile via the profile generator PFCG.

2. assign the user this activity group in his/her master record and here
you can input the "valid to date" the last date you want the user
to access the profile.

I am assuming you run " mass compare" on dialy basis as a batch job. This tool will remove the profile from the user master record hence he/she can not access the transactions contained in this profile after that date specified in the "valid to "

I hope this will help.

we run batch job to clean the user account but that de-activates or deletes the user.
Is there a way, we can just remove profile after the due date has passed and not delete the user?
Because, we are giving some special profile to a user for 3 days and we want to keep other roles/ profiles.
Thanks in advance.

Do mass comparison by running transaction PFUD or report RHAUTUPD_NEW.
