How does permissions and Operational behavior work together.

Does RTC look at the permissions set for the role and then look at what operational Behavior is set for the role?

So for example if you set a role A to be able to modify an attribute but you have also set the Operational Behavior that the same attribute is read-only for everyone but Role B. Would Role A still be able to modify the attribute based on permissions?

Please read How should I ask a question in the Forum if I want to receive useful answers? and the section around tagging. If there is no product tag, the question should not be asked here.

With respect to RTC and permissions and operational behavior.

  1. If the user has no permission, an operation is not performed.
  2. If the user has permission, then the operational behavior can act upon the operation

See and for more details.

Please note that operational behavior - advisors/preconditions - typically enforce a process which means they limit what a user can do even if they have the permission. So your example, even if the user has permission to change the attribute, if it is made read only, he can't change it in that situation.
