When you upgrade SAP NetWeaver Application Server, SAP can add new authority checks to applications you are already using. Your users need the authorizations for the new authority checks to continue using the functions they have used until now. You must use Profile Generator: Upgrade and First Installation (transaction SU25) steps 2a/b and 2c to update the defaults and roles to include the new authorizations. Performing this update requires time. To enable your users to work productively in the upgraded system until you have updated the defaults and roles, run report REGENERATE_SAP_NEW. This report creates a role, SAP_NEW with the new authorizations. Assign SAP_NEW to the users affected by the upgrade.
Do not forget to delete the role assignments to SAP_NEW once you are finished with the update to the authorization defaults and roles.
The composite profile SAP_NEW is obsolete.
