User Administration (UME) Configuration Requirement to Add Principals to NW BPM Pool

During the configuration of NW BPM, have you ever ran into an authorization error when adding an UME principal as a Administrator or Potential Owner of a BPM pool.  Example screens for this process:



In order to correct this problem, the user used during this process must have a role with the action “Spml_Read_Action“.

A role with this action can be created in the UME.  Then this role can be added to the user.

Below are a few simple steps to accomplish this:

  1. Logon to UME with an authorized user:
  2. Create a new role:
  3. Provide a role name and assign activities:
  4. Select the user:
  5. Assign the new role to the user:

Repeat the task to assign an UME principal.  It should now work.

You can reference Note 1647157 for more details.

      Apparently you will need both the Spml_Read_Action and Spml_Write_Action
