Universe security

I have a user X who is a WEBI developer but not a universe developer. He can log into Infoview and create webi but does not have the authorization to create any universes.

I have a universe folder which has about 5 universes in it. The security for the "Everyone" groups is set to "View" for every universe within the folder. When user X logs into infoview to create a webi, he should see the list of all 5 universes within the universe folder from which to choose from. The problem is that he only see one of the universes in that folder.

I find this to be a very wierd issue. WHy would he not see all 5 universes but just that one. Can someone pls help with this??

This is interesting....hmmm....

Can you please try the following:

1- In CMC, click on one of the universes which this user can not see. Go to the rights tab to make sure that Only the Admin, Eveyone, and Universe Designer groups are defined there.

If the answer is Yes, then, please check the following:

2- The UserX belongs does not belong to any groups (other than EveryOne) listed in Step1.

I suspect that somehow on the universes which are not visible, there are some denied rights coming across from some other groups.

Please confirm the above and then if it still does not work, let me know and i'll try another test.
