    User denied permission for function 'Staff privileges

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 17.01

    After upgrading, when I click on "Staff Privileges" (in the "Key pop-up" on the right-hand side of the bottom toolbar), I get the error message: "User denied permission for function 'Staff privileges (Passwords)(PASSWORD))/User list - Display (USER-LIST)" -- even though my login had PASSWORD permission in the old version and SQL SELECT in the Z67 shows that my login *does* have PASSWORD permission in the new version.

    The pw_library entry in aleph_start (or aleph_start.private) needs to be UPPER case:.
    setenv pw_library ABC50.
    setenv pw_library abc50.
    Note: the pw_library, usr_library, and z105_library setenv's need to be uppercase:.
    setenv pw_library ABC50.
    setenv usr_library ABC50.
    setenv z105_library ABC50.
    In all other setenv's in aleph_start, the library must be lowercase..
    Such as:.
    setenv abc50_dev ${USER_MOUNT}/u${ALEPH_VERSION}_$ALEPH_COPY.
    setenv ALEPH_LIBS "$ALEPH_LIBS abc01 abc30 abc50 abc60".
    setenv REQUEST_STARTUP_LIBS "abc50"
