If you do not have 'Hierarchy - Manage Metrics' rights, you are incorrectly able to see the 'New Metric' link and the 'X' on existing metrics, leading you to believe you have permission to create and delete metrics. You will see an error 'API-1007 : You are not authorized to process request. Contact your system administrator for necessary security rights' trying to create a metric.
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected Results: The user should NOT see the 'New Metric' or the 'X' as the user does not have permission to create, edit and delete metrics or calculations.
Actual Results: In trying to create, edit or delete a metric or calculation, the user will get the toast message 'API-1007 : You are not authorized to process request. Contact your system administrator for necessary security rights.'
This issue was reviewed by Sustaining Engineering as DE63108 and determined to be working as expected.
