coming from using Low Code Factory approach and using App Studio 8.4.1, I am missing the App Studio link and management by an author of Roles and Personas.
There is no clear explanation where and how “Personas” and “Roles” are related and mapped.
In “Users” navigation item is a view in „People“ tab that shows and lists People by “Name” and “Role” and allows creation and invitation and other view in “Personas” tab that just shows mapping of Personas with Number of Users.
Can you explain more what Role (and with it Access Group) is mapped to a Persona and where that can be managed within App Studio alone?
Can you explain how a Persona is mapped to a User?
I can only find mapping of People to Roles (assuming Person=User=Operator).
Not even the “Access” tab resolves that missing link.
Also this article in “Application Development” book has a promising titlle, but does not resolve the question.
Persona is a wrapper rule around the Access group. Access groups had been represented in App Studio as Roles. All Personas would have an access group associated with it. But all access groups may not have a persona associated. Personas mainly represent the group of users for the application. The roles or access groups represent both users of the application and also the app developers.
At People page we are still showing roles. Because for an application it would be needed to associate a user with an application persona and also with an app developer role. When you associated a user to a role, the user would automatically get associated with the corresponding persona (if it exists). I understand this is not very clear. We intend to make it better in future.
