Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
P6 Pro Reports with Security Profiles & Profile Privileges not publishing correct information

The P6 Pro ‘standard reports’:
• GS-02 – Global Security Profile (GSP) Privileges
• PS-01 – Project Security Profile (PSP) Privileges
& reports developed with the wizard that reference Security Profiles & Profile Privileges do not reflect the profile / privilege assignments made in P6 EPPM. There are:
• 5 GSP & 3 PSP privileges that are not a visible / selectable option, but are included in the report &
• 21 GSP & 3 PSP privileges that are a visible / selectable option, but excluded from the report

Reports indicate that the profile does not have these GSP privileges assigned:
• Add/Edit/Delete Global Visualizer Filters
• Add/Edit/Delete Global Visualizer Layouts
• Provision Users from LDAP

Whereas this profile should have all possible privileges assigned & as you can’t review this profile, it isn’t possible to check or amend the assigned privileges.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The P6 Pro reports should publish all profiles & privileges as per the P6 EPPM options.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
           1. Login to P6 Client;
           2. Go to reports tab and run the mentioned reports.
           3. Observe reported behavior.
