4.29 - Add Dynamic Separation of Duty (DSD) Set Member

SDSet addDsdRoleMember( SDSet ssdSet, Role role ) throws SecurityException;

This command adds a role to a named DSD set of roles. The cardinality associated with the role set remains unchanged.

The command is valid if and only if:

  • The DSD role set exists.
  • The role to be added is a member of the ROLES data set but not of a member of the DSD role set.
  • The DSD constraint for the new role set is satisfied.

This method:

  • Adds a member to an existing DSD set.
  • Affects (runtime) role activations.

required parameters:

  • SDSet#name - contains the name for the Set to be modified.
  • Type of SD Set - ‘DYNAMIC’ (automatically set via this method).
  • Role#name - of new set member.


  • SecurityException - thrown in the event of data validation or system error.
