2180801 - What is Granular Role Based Permission (RBP) and how do I enable it?- Compensation Management


Currently when setting Compensation management permissions, you can only permission items based on the main admin tools options. You cannot set permissions for the features within Compensation Home  such as Design Worksheet, Copy Plan, Add plan etc.


The Granular Role Based Permission (RBP) expandes and increases the number of options that can be permissioned by RBP to include these other features. This allows a greater amount of control for what specific administrators would be able to change within admin tools and further restricts permissions.
