Ever since we've used RA, I've noticed that it takes a long (4-5 minutes) time to apply security changes in ASAP (Administration --> Permissions). It was not a big deal until now, when we are dynamically provisioning environments, and we need to include the assignment of permissions as part of our process. Even using the API, the call takes several minutes to complete.
Can anyone explain why permission changes take so long? Is there a way to make these changes more immediate?
