BEWARE: srchFilter usage may negate each other in certain situation.

If you are using deny (NOT) in your srchFilter be aware that inheritance of multiple roles with negative filters will negate each other.

For example:

role1: srchFilter = NOT abc
role2: srchFilter = NOT xyz

inherited/combined:  srchFilter = (NOT abc) OR (NOT xyz)
       outcome = access to all.

Anyone have a workaround for this?

This sounds like a case for srchFilterSelecting = false: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.3/Admin/authorizeconf

Then you'd get a combined filter of (NOT abc) AND (NOT xyz)
