Hi,

Is it possible to customize Roles to have hierarchical roles. Eg at Top level Role 1, Role 2, Role3 should be available and within Role 1 i need to have a Role a, Role b.

Is this achievable in Liferay?


Regards,
Bala.

No, but if your users are part of an organization heirarchy you should be able to get expected result...

I think it should be a useful improvement.

Even though user can be assigned to hierarchical organization what you can't do it's assign a permission (action + resource) to a "parent role".

Hi Balaji Murugesan,

I think it's a relly common and useful issue.
If you still need it and want put it to Liferay attention as important New Feature, you can vote it: https://issues.liferay.com/browse/LPS-34333

Thanks,
Denis.
