Summary

Modify Privilege Set doesn't "stick" on Hosted File

Version

FileMaker 11 v3 Advanced

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

Trying to modify privilege sets because they were set "too strict". Went in and edited Staff and Boss and when I re-opened the file with [Full Access] my changes didn't take.

Went in and edited just the Staff and the changes didn't take.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Go under MANAGE>SECURITY and make several changes or even create or duplicate a privilege set on a hosted file. Hosted with FMS 11 and using FMA 11

Expected result

Expected the changes to still be there when opening the file again.

Expected the created privilege set to be there.

Expected the duplicated privilege set to be there.

Actual result

The changes had reverted to a previous state.

The created privilege set was blank but for an up/down arrow and cannot be deleted.

The duplicated privilege set was blank but for an up/down arrow and cannot be deleted.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error messages

Workaround

The way I have been able to get around it is to make tiny changes. For example, for Staff change layouts from custom to view only. Close the file. Re-open the file. Go under records and change the view to YES for all the tables the user can view. Close the file. Re-open the file. Go under records and change the edit to YES or LIMITED for all the tables the user can edit. Repeat again and again until all the changes are made.
