    Hi Pal

    There is nothing as a derived composite role in SAP.

    Following are the different roles we find:

    1. Template role - Base role with the desired Authorizations as per the purpose of the role; with the organizational levels as Compnay Code, Plant, Sales Organization ... all set to * (all).

    2. Derived role - Role that is derived or inherited from the Template role. The only difference it has with the template role is that the organizational levels as Company Codes are restricted to a particualr value rather than *. Thus making any auth level changes to template role will affectt he derived roles automatically.

    3. Composite role - Its a collection of many derived roles or single roles. We cannot have a composite role inside another composite role. We can alos not have a composite role as a template role.
