FR View Profile Send Message MarcLasserre_GCS PEGA replied to Maheedhar Hello, This is just another way to restrict extra privileges to specific roles. I guess the example provided on the HELP file is the best explanation: Posted: 5 years ago Posted: 5 Jan 2016 12:23 EST × Close popover Arvind Malav (ARVINDMALAV) PEGA Technical Manager PEG IN View Profile Send Message ARVINDMALAV PEGA replied to Maheedhar Hope below PDN link gives you idea about it: https://pdn.pega.com/sites/pdn.pega.com/files/help_v719/procomhelpmain.htm#rule-/rule-access-/rule-access-role-/rule-access-role-obj/main.htm Accepted Solution Posted: 5 years ago Posted: 5 Jan 2016 13:09 EST × Close popover Pankaj Rawal (rawap) PEGA Sr Architect, Case Management Pegasystems Inc. IN View Profile Send Message rawap PEGA replied to Maheedhar Never used it, but here is my explanation. Let's say you need to provide access to a particular area in your application based on the number of years of experience. So Manager's need 5 Years of experience to access that feature in application while User's will need 8 Years of Experience to access that feature. Now a Manager has below Access Role App:Manager And User have following AccessRole App:User And Admin has following Access Roles App:User App:Manager So in this case, you will create a Rule-Access-Setting "Experience" and specify in both access roles. So now at runtime, you can use function getSetting(AppliesTo, SettingName) to get the setting value for logged in operator and control application behavior access. Also, notice that Multiple settings behavior will be useful for Admin which have both access roles with different settings for Experience, so the largest Experience will be picked, 8 in this case. I know that this example doesn't makes much sense since i just went through the help but should be enough to understand the basics Also Sort function can be used if Data type is string and you want to sort based on Card Type (Platinum > Gold > Silver) Let me know if this helps.

So if want to use the setting as given in help example to route the assignment, we can create custom activity and route to operator based on the setting value.
