Business Roles (and User assignments) are used within various parts of ActiveControl, including:
- Within the Rules Engine approvals consumer, to define who can approve in the Inboxes and Outboxes in the workflow.
- Within the Rules Engine testing consumer, to automatically add testers to Business Tasks.
- To define recipients for Custom email notifications.
Business Roles and the associated User assignments should not be confused with SAP user roles and assignments, however it is possible to link these entities by using the optional capability detailed in this online Knowledge Article.

Business Roles are typically maintained via the Business Roles app tile on the Administration screen.
For customers that prefer to transport User Roles via SM30 configuration, this can be done via the configuration detailed in this online Knowledge Article.
