    I wonder if your blog, which mainly consists of a couple of screenshots, really deserves the title you gave him.

    Please don’t get me wrong, but I consider this type of presentation as quite superficial – nothing new, nothing helpful.

    I think it is important, every now and then, to pick up old themes for new blogs that have already been covered. Especially Beginner Blogs are important, (for beginning readers and beginning authors). It is also a great chance to get actual screenshots from newest releases.

    What it it missing here is the actual “Storytelling”. ( There is a great book from fellow blogger Shel Israel about that) Beginner needs to know why, how and what the strategic context is (What is the impact of role design, whatare different SLD scenarios). This series of blogs is a great work of effort in the beginning, but it definitiely needs the same amount in text, the so called W’s:  “WHAT” “WHY” and “WHEREFORE”
    Keep up the work, xiaohon
    Keep Up the work,

    In the latest version, key storation has been moved to NWA, so the part of single sign on for the user role I didn’t mention in this blog.

    Hi xiaohong,
    it is great to update your own blog regularly with news and additional technical information. It enhances the experience for everybody as well, when you also answering comments and start a lively discussion about your blog, it is very rewarding and part of the storytelling (As I said this one is great:

    Hi Xiaohong.
    Nice blog, it’s helpful and i like it. But as has been written – some key questions weren’t answered.
    What’s the purpose of importing ABAP backend roles to the portal and vice versa? Why should I do that? I’d like to know advantages/disadvantages of those approach.
    I’m looking forward to see the third part of Step by Step learning EP blog.

    Normally all the SAP systems can be integrated into portal, the user use the single sign on to logon portal and run BSP, web dynpro or ITS from different back ABAP systems,  some time user doesn’t have the authorization to logon all the backend ABAP systems, and maybe some time there are a lot of users has the same authorization for same role. ABAP role is for each ABAP backend system, portal role is only for Enterprise portal. The transfer of ABAP role and portal role is faster than manually creating the portal role and ABAP role separately. The key storage for portal role and ABAP role for each user has been moved to NWA in the latest version, I didn’t cover that part in this blog.
