                for (String segment : roleSegments) {
                    RoleDescriptor descriptor = parseRoleDescriptor(segment; path; logger; resolvePermission; settings);
                    if (descriptor != null) {
                        if (ReservedRolesStore.isReserved(descriptor.getName())) {
                            logger.warn("role [{}] is reserved. the relevant role definition in the mapping file will be ignored";
                                    descriptor.getName());
                        } else if (flsDlsLicensed == false && descriptor.isUsingDocumentOrFieldLevelSecurity()) {
                            logger.warn("role [{}] uses document and/or field level security; which is not enabled by the current license" +
                                    ". this role will be ignored"; descriptor.getName());
                            // we still put the role in the map to avoid unnecessary negative lookups
