- Select a Security Role.
- Click the Copy Role icon; the Copy RoleVertical View displays.
- Enter a description in the Description for the new role.
- Enter a unique name in the New Name field for the new role.
- Click Save.
- Click the Copy Role icon.
- Click the Back arrow.
NOTE: Once the Back arrow is clicked, the new role will appear on the Security Roles page.
