    • Select Objects > Procedure
    • Select Method > Import Knowledge Modules > Remove the assigned Method (Uncheck)   
  4. Assign the above profile, and the Connect profile to a user.
  5. Login to ODI Studio with the user credentials.
  6. Go to the Global Objects under the Designer tab and locate the Global Knowledge Modules. Right-click and select Import Knowledge Module...
    Note the option to import is available, and if done, the import succeeds.
