User Maintenance: Mass Changes (transaction SU10), enables you to perform most of the changes that you can make for individual users in User Maintenance (transaction SU01), but for many users at once. You can change logon data, company address, defaults, parameters, roles, profiles, groups, and licensing data.

The mass change functions apply to all users displayed in the selection screen unless you select a subset.

If you make mass changes from the central CUA system, profiles and roles are displayed system-dependently.
