3307099 - Not possible to edit a Derived Business Role


You're trying to add a Business Catalog or a Restriction to a Derived Business Role but the change buttons are greyed out/not available.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to "Maintain Business Roles" app
  2. Open the Business Role
  3. Click on "Edit" button
  4. The change buttons will be greyed out (Such as "Remove" and "Check Dependencies" buttons)


The values defined in the Leading Business Role can't be changed in the Derived Business Role. It's not possible to make changes in the basic settings such as access restrictions and assigned business catalogs directly in this role.


Please, use the Leading Business Role to make the changes and they will be reflected into the Derived Business Roles.
