Added user to metrics-report-run role but couldn’t see Metrics link

I just added a user to the metrics-report-run role as documented in the Connections Wiki.
I expected to see a link to Metrics if logged in with this user but I didn’t:

I deleted the browser cache, server cache, restarted servers… no success

Funnily enough I could access Metrics through the direct link!?

Finally I decided to check security role mappings for all apps and found another metrics-report-run role for the Common app.

I added the user to Common app as well and logged in again, voilà:

Btw. same is true for global-moderator role (Moderation).

PS: Wiki article is now updated 😉



Thanks for this. I had run into the same problem, but figured it was a Production Bug. I will try this fix and see if it solves my problems.
