Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Business Administrator's Guide

ProcedureTo Enable or Disable Roles

Roles can be enabled and disabled on the List Roles tab. Role status is displayed in the Status column. Click the Status column header to sort the table by role status.

Disabled roles do not appear on the Roles tab in the Create/Edit user form and cannot be directly assigned to users. Roles that contain disabled roles can be assigned to users, but the disabled roles cannot be assigned.

Users who are assigned roles that are later disabled do not lose their entitlements. Role disablement only blocks future role assignments from occurring.

Disabling and re-enabling a role requires the permission of the role owner.

Upon enabling or disabling a role with assigned users, Identity Manager will prompt you to update these users. For more information, see To Update Roles Assigned to Users.

  1. Search for the role you want to delete by following the instructions on To Search for Roles or To View Roles.

  2. Click the checkboxes next to the roles that need to be enabled or disabled.

  3. Click Enable or Disable at the bottom of the Roles table.

    The Enable Role or Disable Role confirmation page opens.

  4. Click OK to enable or disable the role.
