Master Data Management

Add a Conflict to a Role

When a Designer assigns role conflicts, the system does not allow a single user to execute those same roles within the same request, even if that user has security to both roles.

Role conflicts help users maintain Sarbanes-Oxley compliance by warning the security administrator if conflicts of interest exist between a user and the assigned role(s).

Before this task can be performed, multiple roles must exist within the category. Refer to Add a Role for more information.

To add conflicts to roles:

  1. Select Master Data Management > Design in the Navigation pane.
  2. Click the Roles icon for a category.
  3. Click the Conflicts icon for a role.
  4. If no conflicts exist, the page displays in add mode. Otherwise click Add.

    View the field descriptions for the Role (Conflicts) page.

  5. Select the name of the role that is in conflict with the role selected on the Role page from the CONFLICTROLEID list box.

    NOTE: A user who is assigned to both roles can only execute one during the request posting process.

  6. Click Save; Vertical View displays.
  7. Enter information as to why the roles are in conflict in the Comment field, if needed.
  8. Click Save.
