Creating a role block

You can remove inherited role assignments by creating a role block. Inserting a role block affects all users and groups who do not have explicitly assigned roles on a resource. You can create a propagation block for a resource so that children of the resource will not inherit any assignments for the role type, and you can create an inheritance block so that a resource will no longer inherit any assignments for the role type from the parent resource.
