Delete security roles

To delete a security role:

  1. In the left pane of the Administration Console, select Security Realms.
  2. On the Summary of Security Realms page, select the name of the realm that contains the role definition (for example, myrealm).
  3. On the Settings page, select the Roles and Policies tab. Then select the Roles subtab.

    The Roles page organizes all of the domain's resources and corresponding roles in a hierarchical tree control.

  4. Access the Global Roles page or Scoped Roles page:
    • For a global role:
      1. In the Roles table, in the Name column, expand the Global Roles node.
      2. In the Name column, select the Roles node.
    • For a scoped role:
      1. In the Roles table, in the Name column, expand the nodes in the Names column until you find the resource that contains the role.

        For information on finding resources in the Names column, see Column Display.

      2. In the Name column, expand the resource's node and select its Roles sub-node.
  5. In the Global Roles table or Scoped Roles table, select the check box next to the role and click Delete.
  6. Click Yes to confirm the deletion.


The role mapper provider that maintained this role is responsible for deleting the role from its repository. If you used the default WebLogic Server role mapper, the role is deleted immediately from the repository. If you used a third-party role mapper, refer to its documentation for details on when it removes the role from its repository.
