Managing task delegations

You can temporarily delegate role memberships and responsibilities (and associated entitlements and duties) to other identities.
For example, if you go on vacation, you can hand over responsibility for a department and the associated tasks to a deputy.

Role memberships and responsibilities can also be delegated to you.

NOTE: In the Web Portal, a delegation is treated like a request.
