Enhance Application Process Required Role

Currently application processes can be configured so that a required role is needed to run the process. Unfortunately this is limited to a single role. We currently have a range of platform roles for seniority in platform teams that work across multiple applications, we want to be able to restrict specific processes to the group of platform roles only.

The aim is to have this as a mutli select option for roles, this is to enable multiple roles to be isolated to running the process and also removing visibility of the process to all other roles.

    We have some follow-up questions around this enhancement that we would like your input on.

    1) Does requiring multiple roles work as an 'and' or an 'or'? We assumed 'or' but are not sure. (It is an 'or' for this use case)

    2) We do not think we should do anything around removing visibility, we do not currently have permissions on application processes to control their visibility independent from the application. Is this ok with you? (we would like you to test this - if someone is in role a and someone in role a and b. if process is set to role b only, the second user will be only one to see the process we believe). use of checkboxes to select multiple roles would be nice.

    Please provide your response to the questions above and we can continue to progress this enhancement.
