Restoring 'privileged access'

I mistakenly unchecked a user’s ability to ‘be granted rights’. In trying
to restore the right, I can’t seem to find their name in
’Configuration/Users’. Is there any way to restore them to privileged
status through the UI?

“find people whose userid contains” … on the search page ought to do you.On Wed, Nov 07, 2001 at 06:56:25PM -0500, Frank J. Reda wrote:

Tried that - it doesn’t work… it doesn’t find him…

I looked for him through MySQL, he’s there (with a ‘0’ in the privileged
field). Can I just change it there? Or, will it munge the indices?

We’ve been able to restore user rights by finding the user ID using
a query for all users of name (whatever). The user name will appear
in the resultset.

OK - thanks for all of the advice - but none of it worked.

I went in through MySQL and found that both the privileged and disabled fields
needed to be changed.

That seems to have fixed the problem.

Ah. yes. if you’d disabled the user, they wouldn’t show up in the listings.
2.0.9 adds the ability to search for disabled users.On Fri, Nov 09, 2001 at 01:03:50PM -0500, Frank J. Reda wrote:
