Insufficient privileges for Stream Admin rule

Hi everybody,

A goal - to have a stream where user group can publish, delete, duplicate apps. It will be something like a testing space for local developers.

What was done..

1. Security rule for Stream administrators

Name: cust_StreamAdmin

Resource filter: Stream_*,App*

Actions: Create, Read, Update, Delete, Export, Publish, Change owner, Export data

Conditions: ((user.roles="cust_StreamAdmin")) and ((resource.name="Testing stream"))

Context: Both in hub and QMC

2. Assign rule cust_StreamAdmin to user

3. Security rule for visualizing QMC sections for StreamAdmins

Name: cust_StreamAdmin_QmcSections

Resource filter: QmcSection_Stream,QmcSection_App,QmcSection_App.Object,QmcSection_DataConnection,QmcSection_Task,QmcSection_Event,QmcSection_SchemaEvent,QmcSection_CompositeEvent,QmcSection_ReloadTask,QmcSection_UserSyncTask

Actions: Create, Read, Update Delete

Conditions: ((user.roles="cust_StreamAdmin"))

Context: Both in hub and QMC

So it is possible to publish app from Work stream to Testing stream but it is not possible to republish (update app), duplicate or delete.

The delete button is disabled and for republish action I got an error "The operation failed due to insufficient privilege"

What I'm doing wrong???

Please help

There is a Default Security Rule called "OwnerPublishDuplicate". This Rule will enable all the app owners to publish the app, you can edit this rule and enable Delete option in this rule to enable App owners to Delete the App.

But before editing the default Security Rules please take a backup of the rule, later you can replace if you want.

Hi Artjoms,

Conditions: ((user.roles="cust_StreamAdmin")) and ((resource.name="Testing stream")) mean you can make specifed actions on resources which name is "Testing stream". But I assume none of your apps have that name , So that is not valid for the apps.

You can try like this:

Conditions: ((user.roles="cust_StreamAdmin")) and ((resource.type="Stream" and resource.name="Testing stream") or resource.type like "App*")
