NX10 Roles tab missing

Experimenter
Experimenter

I just installed NX10 and I'm trying to setup our company roles but I cant find the roles tab per these NX10 help directions. Step 3 is what I cant find. This tab has been in prior releases until 10.

 

Thanks,

Eddie

I always found it easier to use the context menu of the resource bar, since you don't have to go through so many mouse clicks.

 

From the context menu (right mouse button) of the roles panel of the resource bar select New User Role Smiley Wink

Thats the route I ended up using but its not how the help says to do it. Also that way does not allow you to load a previously saved role unless I'm overlooking it.

I am always saving my site-wide roles into the %UGII_SITE_DIR%\startup\roles or any other startup\roles directory of custom_dirs.dat, group- or department-wide roles go into the %UGII_GROUP_DIR%\startup\roles directory.

%UGII_USER_DIR% points to a server share and holds the settings for each user in a separate folder structure.

 

If I like to change a site or group role, I use a copy in my user roles and copy the file over afterwards.

Re: NX10 Roles tab missing

I think what you are looking for has moved to Preferences > User Interface > Roles:

Please log a call with GTAC on this - it could be that the help was not updated.

The instructions are misleading for which "customize" you use. I found that if you open the roles tab in the resource bar and then right click>customize you then can choose the hammer/wrench icon (tab) to add a network folder to store roles in.  DO NOT right click>customize in the Ribbon Bar. That gives you a completely different customize window.
