  4. Use filter for Busienss Role and exclude a particular role

You  can still see users with given Business Role showing in result list after using exclusion filter.


If a Business User has multiple Business Roles, the exclusion list is incomplete and it will still show them in results.


When you apply exclude filter of Business Role for a Business User with single role, it works as expected and removes this user from search list.

When you are applying exclude filter of Business Role for a Business User with multiple roles, you need to enter all those Business Roles assigned to this user in exclusion list for expected results.
