PJ40753: FILENET ENTERPRISE MANAGER PROPERTY INDEX SET/REMOVE BUTTON IS GREYED OUT

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • FileNet Enterprise Manager (FEM) Property index set/remove
    button greyed out for user added by the WizUpdateOSSecurity.vbs
    security update script
    The ability to create a document property index is controlled by
    the ACL on the DocVersion TableDefinition object.  The
    WizUpdateOSSecurity.vbs security update script does not change
    this specific object when adding groups or users to the P8
    object store security.  When a newly-added administrator or
    group without Full Control rights on this object attempts to add
    a property index, the Property index set/remove button is greyed
    out, and therefore cannot add the property index.
    

Local fix

  • A workaround is to add your group to the ACL of the DocVersion
    TableDefinition object manually:
    
    To add a security group to the ACL of the DocVersion
    TableDefinition object:
    1.  Log into FEM as an Administrator
    2.  Select the object store that you want to update
    3.  Right-click Search Results > click New Search
    4.  Set Select From Table = Table Definition
    5.  Set Table Name Equal To DocVersion, then click OK
    6.  Right-click on the resulting row (DocVersion TableDefinition
    object) and click Properties > Security tab
    7.  Click Add, then look up your group to add this group to the
    ACL.  Click OK
    8.  Verify that your group is set for Allow / Full Control and
    click OK
    All members of your group should now have the ability to add
    property indexes on the object store.  You will need to repeat
    this action on each individual object store.

    * Upgrade to 5.1.0.3-P8CE-FP003 or higher, then re-run the     *
    * WizUpdateOSSecurity.vbs security update script to add your   *

    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • 5.1.0.3-P8CE-FP003 and higher will resolve this problem of the
    Index Set/Remove button being greyed out.  This is fixed by
    re-running the WizUpdateOSSecurity.vbs security update script to
    add your users or groups to have correct access to your P8
    object store security.  After this action is performed, your
    newly-added administrator or group without current Full Control
    rights on the DocVersion TableDefinition object will have rights
    to add a property index.
