Question:

I am logging in with the Security Admin role. I am editing a user and assigning a profile and Application role.

When I try to choose an application role, there are some that are not available. Why are they not available to choose?

Answer:

A user with the application role "Security Admin" is only allowed to assign roles with the same or a lower level of permissions.

For instance: If Security Admin does not have SELECT rights in Compliance and Contracts, they will not be able to assign a role which does have those rights.
