Stratusphere Dashboard New Access Group Does Not Show in the Edit Dashboard Eligible Groups

Product: Stratusphere

Product Version: 6.1.3

Expires on: 365 days from publish date

Updated: October 08 2019



A new access group created in the inventory does not display in the Eligible Groups when editing an existing or a new dashboard.



Unable to provide access to dashboard users when trying to restrict access.


This is a work around for the time being to add the access group to be displayable in the eligible groups  under Access Groups of  the Edit Dashboard screen.

The group is not passed on to the webuis variables file and needs to be manually added in the backend.
