Attribute of a BP role.


The role category makes it possible for SAP and customer programs to program on the BP role.

You can, if required, define your own role categories and attributes in Customizing.

You can create a 6-character key in the customer namespace (Y* and ZÜ*) for the role category. You can also choose a title as the short form and a description as the long form for the role category text.


The role category depends on a differentiation type.

Any number of BP roles can be assigned to a role category, with one role always acting as the standard role per role category.

It is possible to control the update of a role by assigning a role category to a role.

The role categories can be valid for several business partner categories.
