In this excerpt from his article, Prashant discusses how you can assign roles using transaction code PFCG.
Assigning Roles Using Transaction Code PFCG
Here is how you assign roles using transaction code PFCG. First, as mentioned previously in the prerequisites, you must activate the Organizational Management button (or menu option) on the user’s tab in transaction code PFCG. Do this by clicking the Complete view (Organizational Management and workflow) radio button on the screen shown in Figure 1. If this is not done, the Organizational Management button is not shown and this menu option is disabled.
