2253428 - Manage Advance Objects Visible Although No Permission Granted


Manage Advances has no permission in the RBP role however the user can still see Manage Advance Objects through the Admin Centre.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to the instance
  2. Open Admin Centre
  3. Search for Manage Advance Objects

You'll be able to access this view although you do not have permissions set up in the RBP. However there is no data displayed in this view.




Before b1511 the permissions for the Manage Advance Objects link are based on the Read/Write permissions on Metadata Framework. These are needed however for other MDF actions and are not exclusive to Advances.


From b1511 release, there is a separate RBP Permission to manage Advances called Advances Admin Overview which will manage the access rights of users to Manage Advance Objects.



If your instance is on b1511 release please uncheck, in the relevant RBP, the edit/view permission to Advances Admin Overview to prevent non admin users to access Manage Advance Objects.
