The Roles contain an Access Role name. This Access Role name makes a call to the Rule-Access-role-Obj, which are also called RARO. The RARO is contains Privileges.

The Access Role name is assigned based on the classes in the application. For each class, there can be an Access of role to Object rule, which assigns the privileges to the role for that class.
