    Hi,

     

    I would like to suggest to Blackboard to add the ability to export and import user role permissions, ideally in the form of CSV. I see multiple advantages for this.

     

    1. When new permissions are introduced, if Administrators have a copy of the previous Roles and permissions for each role, they can quickly diff the two extracts and focus on the new ones.
    2. During Role permission update, let's say multiple permissions have changed in a test or staging environment and is now ready to be applied to production, the csv extract can simply be imported into the production environment, reducing possible downtime in prod.
