  • The cause could be that some tools rely on the base Metadata framework permissions to be set as well for the specific employees.

  • Also note that tools like "documentation generation mapping" are configuration/administration related tools, so some basic other tools are needed as well to be able to access this tool.


  • Make sure that the user has related permissions under "Manage Document Generation" table in RBP. The permissions available here are: Manage Document Template, Manage Document Template Mapping, Generate All Documents as Admin, Mass generate all documents as an admin.

  • For the Document generation tools to come up, make sure you set the permissions under the "Metadata Framework" section of the specific role you have defined for your employees:

    Manage Data
    Configure Business Rules
