Guidelines for Copying Abstract Roles

Roles with assigned security profiles contain data security policies that are generated from the assigned security profiles.

When you copy such a role, you copy all of its data security policies, including those that were generated from the assigned security profiles. These data security policies can be difficult to remove successfully from the role copy on the Security Console. Therefore, to avoid copying unwanted data security policies, you're recommended to revoke security profiles from abstract roles before you copy them. Reassign the security profiles to the abstract role when the copy is complete.

Tip: If you have already made a copy of a predefined abstract role with assigned security profiles, then you can remove the copied data security policies as follows:Any remaining data security policies are either predefined and should not be removed or generated from security profiles assigned to your custom role.
