Proactive Toxic combination validation

Hello Team,

User level validation while adding to roles to avoid toxic combination proactively


User1 is part of platoform Mgr role, So user1 should never be part of deployer role.

Can we have the check in place while adding the toxic roles

Msg " Can not add user1 in deployer role , user1 is already part of build mgr role which is a toxic combination."

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, or the idea has aged or has been implemented, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.

    Analysis has provided insight that this is not possible. As mentioned in previous comment, UCD does not know the semantics of the roles and it is not possible to implement this type of change.

    UCD does not know the semantics behind the roles, so does not "know" what a toxic combination would be.

    Could you give me more insight, why you need that and how it should work?
