The PortalSystemDelegator role is a role that allows users in the role to manage Portal assets, in particular Portal Library assets.  A user with the PortalSystemDelegator role is able to create Objects, such as books and portals, but is unable to view them within the Portal Administration Tool.

The issue can be reproduced as follows:-

1) In Portal Admin Console create  a user 'my_user_da'.

2) Make this user as a Delegated Administrator. (Home -> Users, Groups, & Roles -> Delegated Adminstration)

3) Logout and log on with 'my_user_da'

4) In Portal Admin Console  go to Portal Management, create a book in the library. This will create a book but that user will not be able to view the book after creation.

5) Logout and log on with the default Administrator account ,you will be able to see the book.
