The Radicore framework assigns transaction access permissions to user roles, then allows each user to be assigned to a single role. Is there anybody out there who would like to have the ability to assign more than one role to a user?

Tony,

I would like the ability to assign more than one role to a user. It would simplify the assigning of tasks to a role.

How exactly would it simplify it? Surely assigning one role with one set of tasks is simpler than assigning multiple roles each with its own set of sometimes duplicated tasks?

A problem I have realised with the idea of allowing multiple roles per user is that the user's starting task, after they have passed through the logon screen, is identified on the role details. So which start task do I use if the user has multiple roles?

Tony, I was thinking of assigning possibly more than one role, each one with mutually exclusive tasks (not with duplicated tasks).
For example, having these roles:

*read_and_search
*create and modify
*delete

Or these roles:
*good and services
*stock control
*sales
*shipping
*human resources

I think the problem of multiple starting tasks can be solved having a hierarchy of roles.


Thanks.

You mean by assigning a sequence number to each role? Then the role with the lowest sequence number will provide the starting task. Having a hierarchy of roles, with a senior role and a junior role, sounds too complicated to me.

Yes, I mean a sequence number. Like the one that is in the screen

I agree that having a true hierarchy of roles with a senior role and a junior role, and so on, is too complicated.

I implemented this feature in version 1.83.0, but it does not use a sequence number to identify the primary role (from which the starting task is obtained) it uses a boolean IS_PRIMARY flag instead. Only one role can have this flag set to TRUE.
