Information in this document applies to any platform.


Setting up multiple roles for a number of users for whatever reason during implementation was done by assigning multiple roles for one user through OIM or Resource Directory and as a result creates an "external" vs "Automatic" method for provisioning.  "External" as method of provisioning is not always picked up in the automated provisioning process where "Automatic" is and causes the user to lose all their roles within the system. 

e.g. Users appear as getting assigned with the 'Sales Administrator' role randomly because the Sales Administrator role was assigned through both Resource Directory or OIM and the role was never end dated.
