About Roles

Roles are created in SBM Composer as part of an process app, which can comprise multiple applications. Roles can span the applications within the process app and serve two functions:

Roles are distinct from groups, which are named collections of users. Administrators can use groups to identify a set of users based on criteria other than job function. A group could be created for a particular project, for example, or for a division within the company. You can assign roles to a group.

Users and groups are associated with roles for particular projects in Application Administrator.

Note: When groups or users are copied, role assignments are copied with them. Also, when groups or users are imported through LDAP using a template group or user, the role assignments associated with the template are copied to the new group or user.
