EP: roles permissions lost in KM folders after an upgrade
Background: You have upgraded to a newer Enterprise Portal version and the roles and permissions previously maintained are now lost in KM documents folders and rooms however the groups and users which were previously assigned still remain.
Overview: When you assign role permissions to the folder after the upgrades completion all functionality operates accordingly however the older previously assigned roles and permissions are now lost.
Issues & Why: Inside the /root/UME/roles involve custom roles. Such behavior may be caused due to permissions on your resources not being inherited from the collection <i>/documents/documents</i> due to a configuration discrepancy.
Evironment: EP Release Independent SAP NetWeaver
Solution: The permissions should not be effected by an upgrade procedure. Please check if all the permissions on your resources are in fact inherited from the collection <i>/documents/documents </i>. If configurations are maintained correctly the means of the resolution is to correct the role permissions is to reset them once more manually.
