The security "Role" property was once used to set section visibility, typically for approval workflows. This property has been deprecated since 2018, and will be removed in the upcoming v11.1 release (tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, July 12.)
Who is impacted?
Customers who have sections in their workflows and are using the Role property to set visibility are affected.
If you are using this property, we strong recommend setting it to null (select the blank option at the top of the list) and replacing it as described below prior to the upgrade.
If you leave the Role property set, the section will retain this visibility restriction and there will be no means to change it after the upgrade. In order to change the visibility after the upgrade, you would need to delete and re-add the section which may impact workflows in flight.
frevvo recommends using show/hide rules based on the workflow step name as a more reliable method that works in every use case. Show/Hide rules are easily created using the Visual Rule Builder. Refer to this example: Show/Hide Approval Sections on Workflow Steps.
Contact your account manager (or firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like our services team to help you with this.
When will this happen?
This change will occur at the time of the v11.1 Cloud release. While the specific date has not been set, we expect this release in early Q3. Follow our announcements to receive a notification one week prior, 24 hours prior, and at the time of the release.
