2180801 - Compensation & Variable Pay - What is Granular Permissions (RBP) and how it be enabled?


When setting Compensation & Variable Pay 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.

With Granular Role Based Permissions (RBP) this gives you the ability and expands the number of options which can be controlled via RBP.

This allows a greater level of control for administrators to restricts permissions.

**Important 2H 2011 Notice**

Following the 2H 2011 release feature CMP-21194 will NOT be introduced into production instances and has been rolled back. This is due to RBP permissions for users being removed for Compensation & Variable Pay.

This will be reviewed for the 1H 2105 release and more information on this will be available closer to the time.

For those preview instances which have already migrated to Granular permissions please manually assign permissions to users should you find these unassigned.

Should you have any further queries on this or have issues assigning RBP please contact Product Support.
