Role Creation Methodology allows you to customize the role management process steps in the application to match your requirements. You can also set up multiple methodologies: for example, create one methodology for finance roles and another for security roles.

A role creation methodology consists of predefined actions and the steps associated with those actions. The steps, in turn, are then used to create a methodology process, which is used to guide you step by step through the formalized process of defining, generating, and testing a role during role creation.

The methodology process is flexible and can be configured. For example, you can repeat a step multiple times, such as requiring an approval step several times in your process, or you can remove steps you do not need.

Example Example

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

End of the example.

You can use the role creation methodology delivered with the application, change it, or create your own.

To customize the role maintenance process, you set up condition groups. A condition group uses the role attribute values, such as the role type or role name, to define a rule that is used to select a specific methodology. For example, users with the Finance role will use the finance methodology, and users with Security roles will use the security methodology.

Note Note

You can have multiple condition groups associated to one methodology process, but you cannot have multiple processes associated with one condition group.

End of the note.


To create your own role creation methodology:

  1. Generate BRFplus applications, approvers, and methodology functions by using the Customizing activity Generate BRFplus Applications, Approvers, and Methodology Functions under   Governance, Risk, and Compliance   Access Control   Role Management  .

  2. In BRFplus, create condition groups and define the relevant set of attributes, such as role type, and so on.

  3. Assign the condition groups to the BRFplus function using the Customizing activity Assign Condition Groups to BRFplus Functions, under   Governance, Risk, and Compliance   Access Control   Role Management  .

  4. Define the methodology processes using the Customizing activity Define Methodology Processes and Steps, under   Governance, Risk, and Compliance   Access Control   Role Management  .

  5. Assign the methodology processes to the condition group using the Customizing activity Associate Methodology Process to Condition Group, under   Governance, Risk, and Compliance   Access Control   Role Management  .
