Environment

Reproducing the Issue

When trying to perform an RBP Instance Sync, an error occured:Unable to map the following permission to target instance permission: [PermissionSpec  {permType='****', permStringValue='****'} ]

Cause

This error message indicates that source permissions cannot be found in the target instance, hence cannot be copied to target instance.

Resolution

Please check if the target instance has the same permission as source.

If not please change the related configuration to enable those permissions, and try performing the sync again.

For some permissions, even if you can see it from target instance, there is still no way to be mapped from source to target as it contains some business sequence number in the permission spec. For that case, you can only copy those roles manually. Instance sync tool does not support that.

Permissions associated with business sequence number means the permission is related to a form, report or template.
