Author Name: MOSHE RAAB

I think it is necessary to be able to export and import security roles for child business units

Thank you for your suggestion. We need additional clarity on your request. Can you provide us with the scenario? Any roles created in the root business unit are accessible, can be assigned to users in child business units. In general, import export affects the metadata(and data in this case) of the complete organization. If you want more granular control, you can always use the Web services to create\update\retrieve roles in child buisness units. Best regards.

I would like to clarify. we have a development and and a QA system. we add the roles in the Dev ssytem, do unit testing, integration testing with the new roles that we created for the child busoiness units. we then need to manually enter the roles again to the QA and Production systems. We can't assume that they were entered correctly with all the role changes, etc. It would be much better if we can export/import the roles and copy the cahnges to the other organizations
