It would be nice to have function for users that can show them their dynamic group membership based on a selection in item's context.
In a complex setup with several "process roles" based on dynamic groups its its often hard to find out e.g. why some state transitions are not possible.
I was reviewing this Product Idea, can you please elaborate "on a selection in item's context"? Can you please help me with a use case or workflow that you are going thru where you would need this & how does this information help you in your daily routine?

Standard Functionality available in Release 11.2:
A custom report has been created that will list the dynamic groups where the user is assigned to.
Other knows solutions:
Pull out all group details using CLI or API, and analyse programmatically the dynamic groups. But this approach is quite complex, and you would always read data which you don't need to answer this question.

For IM it is almost impossible to understand the dynamic groups concept for the end-user.
In our solution many state transitions are multi-dynamic groups. Also users are assigned to many groups and mapped to multiple dynamic groups.
Hence the end user often does not understand why he is allowed / expected to work on one or the other item because of this multi-assignment.
A user expects a clear indicator out of what role / group he is now allowed to work on this element as this context would help him to understand the expected process step.
Also the item type workflow information is inconsistent as constraints are not evaluated within the workflow view.
This adds another level of complexity for the end user. A normal user has no chance to understand why a solid line (which is an allowed state transistion) in the workflow view is sometimes true and sometimes wrong because of a not visible field constraint the editing user is not satisfying.
