Is "On behalf of" a deployment target a combination of multiple roles?

I’m just a bit confused about how target roles on a deployment target relate to the “On behalf of” during a process step.

For instance:

I have this Azure web app deployment target

Notice the 2 roles, web-app and admin. I have other deployment targets with web-app, but only this is only target with admin.

Now in my deploy Azure web app process step, I have this

Does the On behalf of target all web-app's then all admins deployment targets? Or does it only match targets that match the combination of the target roles?

If the former, then I’m assuming I should change my target role to be web-app-admin, so my process step only targets one target?

Hi Alastair,

Thanks for getting in touch!

That is correct, the role assessment is not cumulative. It will search for all applicable machines with the role ‘web-app’ and all machines with the role ‘admin’, it doesn’t combine them into a single search for machines that only have both roles.

ok cool.

I’ve changed my roles to be web-app-[name] now, so there is only a single target.

Thanks for the help.
