Not able to add same user for multiple roles in AEM Projects


Level 2

While creating a project in AEM, we have the option of adding users for roles defined for the projects in the create project wizard. We cannot add the same user to multiple roles. For e.g We have 2 reviewer roles and I want the same user to add to both the reviewer roles, I cannot do that. We select the user, select the role as Role 1 and click Add. Now we select the same user and select the role as Role 2, when we click Add, the previous entry that has user's role as Role 1 gets replaced by Role 2.


Is there a way we could add the same user to multiple roles ?

@ankushd75501011 : I think you can create the different groups and assigned the permission on group level and add the same user in to those group.Example


User Name : kkc

Group Name1 : reviewer (read access)

Group Name2 : approval (write access)


Thank You.

Hi @kchaurasiya

Adding of groups is not allowed when selecting users while creating a project. It only allows to select users.
