Goal

You have published an agent via a user with the BIAuthor role. The agent has also granted access to another BIConsumer user to be able to subscribe to the agent using the BI Delivers Recipients tab.  Permissions for read and execute have also been granted for BIConsumer role to this agent in the Web Catalog.  However, when logged in as the BIConsumer user, no option to subscribe is visible when clicking More on the Agent in the Catalog, nor is the My Agent Subscriptions option seen in the browse area.  If the user is granted BIAuthor, then both of these options appear.  However, you do not want subscribing users to be authors, only consumers. So which privilege needs to be granted?
