A default user creates a public subscription, but other users cannot see it. In order for other users to see it, the SYSAdmin has to go to the Administration Tab, selecting Role and selecting Default User, and move the subscriptions under ‘Available Subscriptions’ to the ‘Selected Subscriptions’. Why aren't public subscriptions truly public?
