GoGoRoad product managers want to restrict access to development on the New Vendor case type so that only approved roles perform updates. Configure permissions on the New Vendor case type to prevent anyone with the User role from performing any actions on the case type.

The following table provides the credentials you need to complete the challenge.

Role User name Password
Developer author@gogoroad pega123!
Customer Service Representative CSR@gogoroad pega123!
Territory Manager territorymgr@gogoroad pega123!
Note: Your practice environment may support the completion of multiple challenges. As a result, the configuration shown in the challenge walkthrough may not match your environment exactly.

You must initiate your own Pega instance to complete this Challenge.

Initialization may take up to 5 minutes so please be patient.
