    • If you want the assigning role to be able to assign all current and future assignable roles, select All assignable roles and click Apply Changes.
    • If you want to create a fixed set of assignable roles:
      1. Select Selected assignable roles.
      2. Select the role or roles you want to include in the set of assignable roles in Available assignable roles and click <<.

        If you want to remove roles, select the role or roles in Selected assignable roles and click >>.

      3. When you have the set of roles defined in Selected assignable roles, click Apply Changes.

    After you click Apply Changes, the list of all defined role assignment permissions is refreshed in Defined role assignment permissions.

    You can define a set of assignable roles for a different role by repeating steps 3 and 4 for each role for which you want to define a set of assignable roles.
