Known Issue ID FMESERVER-17957
Discovered FME Server 2022.0
Affects All FME Versions with Projects
Resolved Unresolved 


A non-admin FME Server user imports a project (.fsproject) but cannot view or modify the project’s contents. 


Due to permission dependencies, when a user without the fmeadmin or fmesuperuser role imports a project that they did not create, they will not have the correct permissions to view the project or the project contents.  


After a project has been imported into FME Server; a user with the fmeadmin or fmesuperuser role will need to share the project as well as share the contents of the project with the desired user. 

To do this, as the FME Server admin, navigate to Projects, then click on the Share button next to the desired project. 

Share the project with the intended users or roles. 

Note that after sharing the project, automations, topics, and apps will need to be manually shared.

After the project has been shared with the desired user, the user can let the fmeadmin know which content permissions they are still missing (if any) by viewing the project and noting the red exclamation mark.
