Merged Roles


I want to implement merged roles cocept.

I have two roles, RA and RB.

I have two worksets attched(delta linked) to this roles WA & WB.Under worksets there are iview like IA abd IB.

Now as per my understanding I have made the merge id's of both roles as "Sales" i.e same, set the "merge priority" property of both the roles as "80.0" , set the property "can be merged" to "TRUE" for all the objects (RA,RB,WA,WB,IA,IB),set the property "entry point" of the work sets to "NO",

set the property of the role "Entry point" as "YES"

I have assigned these two roles to myself.

When I try to access the role, I am just able to see WA and WB.

What could be the problem?

Thanks and Regards

    Hi Pradeep

    As an excercise I tried out the same scenario as you did except that I set the Merging Priority of RA, WA and IA as 80.0 and RB, WB and IB as 100.0. After defining the Entry Points for both WA and WB as No, I saw that WA, which has the lesser Merging Priority appeared beneath RA. However even after setting the Entry Point for RB as Yes, I am not able to see RB. And I cannot see WB as well whose Entry Point is of course set to No.

    I couldn't find a reason why it is so. I can only conclude that the role which has the lowest Merging priority will be seen in the Top Level Navigation and irrespective of setting the Entry Points as No for its dependent objects they will be seen under the Roles.

    Anyways follow this link. It could be helpful.

    Anyone else got a suggestion?

    Best Regards

    if I understand you correctly, merging works as designed. Are the roles RA and RB set to entry point = yes? If so, both roles should be merged to a single entry point (named either "RA" or "RB"). The contents of this role would be the combination of both roles (i.e. WA and WB).

    What exactly is your expected behavior (i.e. visual appearance)?
