Add a Role Management Action on a Transition

The Role Management action automatically adds a user within a specified role with explicit permissions to the object once it has successfully transitioned into its next state. This action is used to allow users within the role the ability to view objects in their next states without adding them manually through the role element on a configurable form. For example, you want allow users in the Manager role to view any incident that transitions to the Under Investigation state.

Before you can create this action on a workflow state, a transition must be created. See Add a Trigger & Transition to a State article for instructions.

The role(s) added to the Role Management action must be properly configured for the selected object type and workflow state. See the Roles and Workflow Permissions sections for more information.
