Resolving Rule Violations

As exception approver, you can edit violations of rule under your supervision. Rule violations are caused by permissions, so you have the option to remove permissions when you want to resolve one.

You can cancel the resolving process early because it is possible that you have removed other permissions whilst removing the violating permissions.
