View/export participant (role)-based data across all processes for function profile

I would like to view & export all process role based data from all processes to be able to create a function profile.  We have roles that are participants that perform activities in multiple processes. The same role is, next to a participant in one process, also an expert in another activity or even an responsible one.

The RACI aspects of a roles and the activities related should be viewed or exported to support a function profile.

It also means that the labels for participants, expert and responsible should be one an the same but assigned via the RACI matrix into a process or activity.

To complete, an option to assign this role to a Consulting role would complete the need to develop RACI matrixes on a BWL process.

    1) A single role in the glossary can be used in more then 1 process blueprint. I want a view (exportable) that shows a role used in what blueprints AND what activities are assigned to that role per blueprint. (Like a BWL policy you can see "used where") .This export will create the input for a profile/job description.

    2) of a RACI the C and I are both modelled by the role "Expert" A tool as BlueWorksLive Insight (from Salient) exports via the API and allows you to complete the RACI with C & I. It is bad because that data is then outside BWL. We need the full RACI on a Blueprint inside BWL so this single process def is also enough for QHSE department and ISO Q management.

    Hi reg, thank you for creating the idea. I want to summarize my understanding of it to make sure we are on the same page:

    Today, a role defined in the glossary can be assigned as a swimlane, participant or also be a business owner or an expert. You want to be able to export the glossary value and show a RACI matrix for that role - is that correct?

    Can you also please elaborate on the last line "To complete, an option to assign this role to a Consulting role would complete the need to develop RACI matrixes on a BWL process."?

    FYI, today the API can be used to pull this information and get the usage data for a particular glossary item: This will then have to be converted into a RACI matrix.

    The usage information is also available via the UI in the Library glossary value management (example used here is a glossary value "Teachers" and shows where they are a Participant, Business Owner, Expert and in a Swimlane):
