This smart service allows you to overwrite a specific user's entire role map with different users and groups. See role map in the glossary.
Enter the users and groups to overwrite with in the node input roles (Administrator, Editor, Viewer) for this smart service. If no user or group is entered for a particular role, the role defaults to the
Site-wide Default Role Map behavior for that role and is considered "cleared."
By using this smart service, you can easily "lock down" a user and make them invisible to all basic users. Instead of needing to remove the Viewer role from every user or group for that specific user, you can run this smart service with no values in the Viewer input, so the Viewer role defaults to the Site-wide Default Role Map of no viewers.
The user running the smart service must have Administrator privileges over the target user or be a System Administrator. Attempting to complete this task without the proper user rights generates an error message for the process administrator and pauses the process.
The activity is unattended by default. If the activity is run without being assigned to a user (or a group) you must specify values for the node inputs listed in the table below. You can either manually enter data into the text-field or generate a value using the Expression Editor. When using the Expression Editor, you can reference and modify process variables, rules, constants, and other data. The expressions then populate your node input values.
Process designers can switch the activity to attended. If switched, a default form is available to allow the task user to enter users or groups for the node input roles.

This section contains tab configuration details specific to this smart service. For more information about common configurations see the Process Node Properties page.
The data tab displays the node inputs and outputs for the activity. You can add additional inputs and custom outputs, if needed. The default inputs include the following:
|User||People||The user to update (target user). Valid values include deactivated users. By default, you can only run this service against one user at a time. Click here for instructions on running this service against multiple users.||Yes||No|
|Administrators||People||The list of People who will be Administrators in the User role map. In addition to the System Administrators, people set in this role can administer the user. If no value is set, no one but the System Administrator can administer the target user.||No||Yes|
|Editors||People||The list of People who will be Editors in the User role map. The user cannot edit his/her self unless you explicitly include him/her in the value.||No||Yes|
|Viewers||People||The list of People who will be Viewers in the User role map. The list of users and groups set in this role will be honored, and the site-wide default will be overridden for this user. If not set, the site-wide default for user visibility will be used to determine who can see this user.||No||Yes|
The Modify User Security smart service is available as an expression function that can be executed inside a saveInto on a component or as part of a Web API.
a!modifyUserSecurity(user, administrators, editors, viewers, onSuccess, onError)
In order to update multiple users, use a rule defined as
ri!gr is the group containing the users you want to modify to get the list of all usernames to MNI over.
