   In fusion application, there are lots of seeded fusion roles. but, sometime, you still need to create a role with a restricted privilege or customized privilege.

   The general approach for those type of customization is:

      1. find out which duty role control which menu item

         In fusion release 11 and before, you can refer KM Note 1459828.1

         In fusion release 12+, you can use Simulate Navigator to identity which role or privilege control which menu item. See more in <Document 2338470.1>      

If you need to find out roles, privilege for other than the navigator menu link, check the security reference guide for each fusion application product or open SR to Oracle

      2. find out which job role/external role contains the duty role/application role

         In fusion release 11 and before, refer KM Note 1460486.1

         In fusion release 12+,  you can run User and Role Access Audit Report on roles to find out those information

      3. Then by creating a custom role with needed privilege, assigning or remove the job role to an user; it will control what the user can access

   This article will take few steps further to show you how to create a custom role which only have access to manage customer task and create customer task under Receivable, Bill.

   By following the example, you can create a custom role with any combination of duty roles, privilege, but due to the complexity of the security structure, some combination may not work as you expected, you need consult oracle development (through oracle support) to find the good combination.
