CA Output Management Web Viewer

Issue/Introduction



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?

Cause

Default users are not allowed to assign subscriptions to other uses.  Only group admins and sys admins can do this according to certain guidelines stated below.
