Hello, 

Thank you for your idea and the information provided. Even though I acknowledged it, I can't insist enough on the problem description that you are trying to solve. This is an essential point from the Product Managers. 

As for the business value, I recommend to elaborate beyond "medium". This could be an important element to decide what goes into the product roadmap.

Let me elaborate on the problem description;

The Library with the Option pool is Global in our company and the new O&C that are added in this library are controlled by a Governance. This Option pool should have a restricted user group to create or edit its content.

On a lower level in the product containers, a subset of O&C is selected to be used in that specific product container with it's local option set. This local option set with its local rules is managed by a local option manager. This local option manager should be able to create his local rules WITHOUT rights to create/edit O&C in the Option pool.

I need to separate responsibilities since I have 10-20 local option managers and only 2 global managers.

The business value is created by Not having 20 Local option managers destroying the carefully maintained logic in my global option pool.
