Improper configuration/ custom configuration

"AutoDelegateConfig" Object is set to "Secured: Yes" in Configure Object Definitions.



Default configuration

    •  Go to Configure Object Definitions -> Object Definition -> AutoDelegateConfig, and scroll down to the bottom, to change Secured = No.

As per the Permissions for Automatic Delegation Implementation Guide:

  • The default value for Secured is "No". If you choose to set it to "Yes", make sure
    • You also must choose MDF Foundation Objects in Permission Category and enter delegator in RBP Subject User Field before saving the object definition.
    • After that, you must define the Auto Delegate Config and Auto Delegate Details permissions (under MDF Foundation Objects)
