Cause

  • The warning message is a standard data protection message in RBP (going forward in 1802 release)
  • The message is trying to clarify that you can use and setup data blocking by setting up the Data Access Period.
  • Data Access Period can be found by going scrolling all the way to the bottom of a specific permission role and click "edit granting" action of a specific group or user that has been set in the "Grant this role to.." section. See below example image:
