The customer created a separate Security Role (a clone from the Symantec administrator role and removed what he did not want this custom Role to see). He wants to give to this Security Role the permissions to pick a filter that they already can create or use and pick it from a Task\New Schedule\Add Target and click "New" to select the filter.


Currently the Security Role do not see "New" under the select a resource target.

The customer wants to be able to see "New" option on the menu.
