Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Role-Based Permission settings;
  2. Click on "Manage Permission Roles";
  3. Select the respective role you'd like to grant the permission to this feature;
  4. Into the Role, click on the "Permission" button;
  5. Go to the "Manage System properties";
  6. The "Show Me Author" option isn't there.


  1. At first, it's necessary to reset the "Disable Media Service Features" configuration in Cloud Support Provisioning system.
    1. For this, you can go through one of the following ways:
      1. Raise a new ticket under the LOD-SF-PLT-SHW component as per the KBA 1296527, or;
      2. Engage a Support Engineer using the Chat as per the KBA 2213344 (easier and quicker way).

After perform those steps, the Show Me Author feature should be properly accessible to the user.
