03054 - Assigning authorities under PFCG versus SU01CL_GUI_FRONTEND_SERVICES - Frontend Services BAL Application Log Documentation

Assigning authorities under PFCG versus SU01I found the note that I recall seeing. Note 171786. BUT after
reading this release 'independant' note, if I understand it
correctly, it is an error to attach PFCG generated profiles to a user
using SU01, but it is okay to attach the activity group. If you do
so, the user comparison will nuke the assignment. I can't find in
31H a way of attaching anything but a profile. In the test version
of 46C, it appears you can attach either profiles or roles (activity
groups). You appear to be handling this in 46C the same way we are
currently. Have you ever done the user comparison?
