ProcedureTo Remove a Role Assigned to Another Role

Identity Manager will remove a contained role from another role if the role-owner of the parent role approves. The removed role will be removed from users when users receive role updates. (See To Update Roles Assigned to Users for more information.) When the role is removed, users lose the entitlements that were bestowed by the role.

  2. Click the role to open it.

  3. Click the Roles tab in the Edit Role page.

  4. In the Contained Roles section, select the checkbox next to the role that you want to remove, then click Remove. Select multiple checkboxes to remove multiple roles.

    The table updates to show the remaining contained roles.

  5. Click Save.

    The Confirm Role Changes page opens.

  6. In the Update Assigned Users section select an Update Assigned Users menu option. See To Update Roles Assigned to Users for more information.
