Authorizations in SAP systems: what admins should look out for
If you do not maintain the values or set them to a value other than YES, the role menus of the reference user will not be taken into account when setting up the user menu. The two switches are system-wide; It is therefore not possible to define a specific shape for the client. If you set both switches to YES, you will not be able to tell from the user menu entries whether they are from the reference user's or user's role menus. Reference users have another benefit: You can also use it to inherit the contractual user type. A user inherits the classification of the reference user if they do not have any other role or profile mappings with classification, or if they have not been classified manually.
