One of the validations that I am currently missing, in regard to configuring roles, is a validation that informs you as developer of task/report parameters and table columns that are marked as granted but are not available. This scenario often is a result of changing the lookup table or lookup value. In that case the rights will be reset to not available, while the parameter or column is still granted.
It would be of great help if the Software Factory could detect this issue during the validation run. Because often you are unaware of the fact that your change has broken this lookup and therefor these rights.
The result is often that this issue is only detected in the final phase of acceptance testing or even worse, after pushing the new release to production.
In summary I would like to have 3 additional validations:
- Column is set to granted but lookup is not available
- Task parameter is set to granted but lookup is not available
- Report parameter is set to granted but lookup is not available
