Project Manager Data Role questions:

Q1)My understanding is that for the 'Project Accountant' role when a new business unit A is created, the system automatically creates the data role for the business unit.
In this example will be 'Project Accountant for Business Unit A'.

In that way, if I assign a user with the role 'Project Accountant for Business Unit A', the user will have access to the Project Financial Management and Project Management icons in the home page,
and will only be able to access the data for Business Unit A (example: expenditures for Business Unit A).

Is my understanding correct?

Q2) However, for the 'Project Manager' job role, I cannot see that the system is creating the data roles per business unit ('Project Manager for Business Unit A').
Can you explain why? To which data will have the user access if we just assign the 'Project Manager' job role?

Q3) What access will have a user with the 'Project Manager' job role assigned in OIM?
When a user is assigned the Project Manager role gets access to the Project Management icon and can create projects.
Against which Business Unit the user will be able to create these projects of no data security was granted in Manage Data Access for Users

Q4) In your example for user 'PPM PA 1', do I need to assign the 'Project Accountant' job role in OIM before defining the data security in Manage Data Access for Users?

Q5) Once we have granted the data security in Manage Data Access for Users, will the a new role appear in the list of roles assigned to the user in OIM?
(In your example will 'Project Accountant for Business Unit Sample BU 1' appear in the list of roles assigned to the user in OIM?
