Enable Nested Roles in an Environment

You can include a provisioning role within another provisioning role. The included role is named a nested role.

For example, you could create an Employee provisioning role. The Employee role would provide accounts needed by all employees, such as email accounts. You include the Employee role in department-specific provisioning roles, such as a Finance role and a Sales role. The department provisioning roles would provide accounts related only to that department. This combination of roles provides the right accounts for each user.

To enable Nested Roles in an environment

  1. In the Management Console, select the environment.
  2. Click Role and Task Settings, Import.
  3. Select Nested Provisioning Roles Support.
  4. Click Finish.
  5. Restart the environment.
