Within New Security Model, important features are :

Understanding Roles-Sensitivity-Access
Company xylem has uptake EBS Diagnostics.

Requirement wise it can’t assign execution and setup access to the same resource/user;, therefore its required to increase/decrease sensitivity levels of the roles.

Lets say ‘GL Manager’ responsibility is assigned to ‘user and following activity is performed.

Take a note,high sensitivity tests in other applications are not available for this user, as they are locked.

5 steps for creating custom Security

  1. First you need to create a new role
  2. Than, attach the responsibility to this role
  3. Create a new permission set
  4. Create a new grant
  5. Assign the role to the user

Instance Sets,Grants,Permissions and Permission Sets are some of the new keyword which need to revisit in term of new security model.
