Security Role Administration Enhancements

With this enhancement, when creating or updating a security role in Security Role Administration, the security role name is displayed. Upon saving a new or edited role, administrators are directed to the security role table with the role displayed in the search result.

To access Security Role Administration, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Security Role Administration.

When creating a security role, the name of the security role is displayed in the page header on the Permissions and Constraints steps. When creating a security role, the name of the security role is not displayed on the General step because the security role name has not yet been defined.

When editing a security role, the name of the security role is displayed in the page header on the General, Permissions, and Constraints steps.

Upon saving a new or edited role, the administrator is directed to the Security Role Administration page with the new or edited role displayed in the search results. This enables the administrator to conveniently perform additional operations on the role, such as adding or removing users.
