Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server using the administrative console to  *
    *                  manage multiple roles in an application.    *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The administrative console allows you   *
    *                      to Map multiples roles at the same      *
    *                      time. This works differently than       *
    *                      when mapping one role and is            *
    *                      confusing.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Only map one role at a time when maping     *
    *                  users to roles in an application using the  *
    *                  administrative console.                     *
    ****************************************************************
    The administrative console allows multiple roles to be mapped
    at the same time but it MUST work differently than when
    mapping one role. This is confusing, so the ability to map
    multiple roles is being disabled.
