Reproducing the Issue

  1. Add a Rich Text component to a new / existing report page in ORD.
  2. Enable the 'user Editable' option for this component.

  3. Preview / Run the report.
  4. The 'Edit Text' button is missing.
    This option allows users to edit such Rich Text at runtime.


The role of the user running the report doesn't have 'Edit Footnotes' permission in Analytics.



Grant the 'Edit Footnotes' permission to the affected user's role.
