Go to transaction PFCG – Role Maintenance and Copy the standard Role /SAPSRM/MANAGER.


Click on Copy All to copy menu and auth. profile.

After that go to che change mode of the new created role. switch on the Menu tab and create a new folder.


Give the folder name and click OK


After that you can reorder the folders with drag&drop functionality.

Add a WebDynpro application to your new order.

Do not forget to set the new link as a default page


Do not forget to generate the authorization profile and assign the role to the user.
