2274351 - Include Self and Exclude Self Criteria When Adding a Rule - RBP


Under Role Based Permissions (RBP), while adding a rule, the system allows enabling the two options below when granting the Role to any Hierarchical Role:

  • Option 1: Include access to Granted User (Self)
  • Option 2: Exclude Granted User from having the permission access to him/herself

Scenario A

When the both options are enabled, Option 2 will override Option 1. In this scenario granted users will be excluded to have permission access on themselves.

Example: Permission to delete documents (Performance forms).
Significance of the permission: All Managers will be able to look for forms and delete them for their target population but not their own forms.
Concern: When system allows you to select Option 1, it still allows you to check Option 2. This appears to be contradicting in nature.


Scenario B

Only Include access to Granted User (Self) is enabled: the granted users will be included to have permission access on themselves.
When both options are disabled, granted users will not have permission access on themselves, meaning by default system considers Option 2 as enabled.
Concern: Considering Option 2 is system default, why is there additional checkbox?
