Derived Roles

Derived roles are roles that are not explicitly assigned. For example, a manager is not a role that is assigned. Workday derives this role. Someone is the “manager” of a supervisory organization because the person has direct reports. Another example, “role maintainer” is a derived role. It is possible to specify that a security administrator and an HR partner can assign roles. These two roles, then, are role maintainers.
