Editing duties in a copied Role impact the default Role in AX 2012

I'd like to share an issue related to the editing duties in Dynamics Ax 2012. I created an new Security Role and copied some duties from the default Role(s) into the New Security Role. When I edited the duties in the copied one, the same changes were brought in the default role too.

I hope I could convey the message clearly.

You have copied just references to duties; both roles now points to the same duties in AOT. Sharing of well-defined duties across roles is the wanted .behavior.

Create new duties if you want different duties than in the original role. You still can reuse some privileges.

Thanks Martin,

Your answer was helpful.

but Lets share how did I understand the solution.

1- I created new security role

2- from the Role Content  I added the specific privileges to the Role.

3- Then I right clicked on each duty and edit it.

But still there is a link with same AOT source. Could you please give me an step by step solution in this regard?


Thanks again
