There was an upgrade on the customer ends recently and now the user is being logged into CAPC with a new ID.

User was deleted and re-added with new name and they are unable to edit the groups that were created before the upgrade as the role has the right "Administer groups owned by you" only.

***** Make sure you have a good backup of the CAPC mysql database.

1. First we need to determine the current ownerid of the group. 

mysql>select ItemID,OwnerID,ItemName from t_group where ItemName='<GROUP_NAME>';

2.Then we need to find the id of the user. 

mysql> select UserID,name from user_definitions where name='<CURRENT_USER_NAME>';

3. Now we can update the owner of the group with the users current userid. 

mysql>update t_group set OwnerID=<USERID FROM STEP 2> where OwnerID=<OWNERID FROM STEP 1>
