GRC Rename Business Role

Is it possible to rename a Business Role in GRC 10.1? Not the description, but the technical name.

That's because we had some Business Roles with wrong naming convention defined and we want to delete them. However, since they were stuck in some aborted requests with errors, GRC won't let us delete them. Those Business Roles have already been assigned to many users.

Initially we tried re-importing those Business Roles, changing its status to DEV, so they don't appear in the Role Search of the access request. However, they become completely hidden from user's "Existing Assignments", even the technical roles inside it.

Any suggestion is much appreciated.

Hi Gustavo,

I recommend to Copy the business role since renaming is not possible. You can copy the role easily from Role Maintenance.

Hello Gustavo.

It's not possible to change the technical name of any kind of role in BRM.

As far as I know (GRC10.1 SP12), business roles won't appear in "Existing Assignments" because it's data comes from

GRAC_REPOSITORY_OBJECT_SYNC job and they doesn't exist at the backends. On the other hand, for the same reason their technical roles should appear. Have you scheduled this job?

Finally, if you wan't to check the complete list of business roles assignments to your users, you can use GRAC_CHECK_BROLE_ASSIGNMENT report.
