    *                      of the 'Security role to user/group     *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When using Edge or IE, items in the Selected/Available lists of
    the 'Security role to user/group mapping' panel can't be
    selected and therefore the user can't map users and roles to
    an application.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The <select> object type used for the elements of the
    list isn't a defined type in Edge and IE, which caused errors
    and the items couldn't be selected. To fix the issue
    a different object type is used for Edge and IE.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.14 and 9.0.0.8. Please refer to the Recommended
