Understanding Access of Role to Object rules

Suggest edit Updated on June 30, 2021

Access of Role to Object rules specify permissions that are granted to a role and access class. These permissions restrict what developers and operators can do with rule and data instances. An Access of Rule to Object rule applies to all instances of its access class.

Access Manager simplifies the process of granting authorization. As a best practice, use Access Manager instead of working directly with the Access of Role to Object rule form. For more information, see Access Manager landing page.

You can use the rule form to do the following tasks:

Access of Role to Object rules can also be created from the Access Role Name rule form.

Typically, an access group contains multiple roles. At run time, the Access of Role to Object rules for all of the user's roles are evaluated. The rule with the most permissive setting takes precedence. For example, if the user's access group has roles A and B, and role A does not have access, but role B has access, then the user has access.
