Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.53 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Applies to PeopleTools 8.53.28, 8.54 and 8.55 environments.


We deployed PeopleTools Patch 8.53.28 and noticed new functionality to add both a Permission list and a role alias.

Three new pages were added:
a setup page to enable this feature (navigation: PeopleTools > Security > Security Objects >Alias Options)
a page to assign an alias role to a role (Navigation PeopleTools > Security > Permission & Roles > Roles)
a page to assign an alias permission list to a permission list (Navigation PeopleTools > Security > Permission & Roles > Permission List).

What are these used for?
