Unable to access the following seeded shared folder:  BI Catalog/ SHARE FOLDERS/ CUSTOM 
for any user even for the users with BI Administrator duty role
This behaviour appeared the next day after the Release 9 upgrade.


The "CUSTOM" folder is not present/visible in the production POD for any user, including a user with BI Administrator role.
I have check in the Administration / Security /Manage Privileges / Catalog / See Hidden Items it was set to "BI Author Role" - the default value.

The user had BI Administrator duty role, checked in APM and via the Administration link being present in OTBI and BIP.
The "BI Catalog/ SHARE FOLDERS/ CUSTOM " folder was missing / not visible nor under BI Publisher
