Custom module UI element not visible for global administrator

Tom Troughton asked on June 21, 2016 15:20

I have added a new UI element to the Custom module in Kentico 9. It's under CMS / Administration / Configuration / Users / Users / Edit user. The element itself is an aspx page inheriting from CMSUsersPage.

When I associate this UI element with a role and sign in with a user which has that role then I can see my custom UI element listed alongside the other left-hand tabs when editing a user.

However, this tab is not listed when signed in as global administrator. If I actually navigate to the UI element page itself then my global admin can access the page and use it correctly.

So I guess I just need to understand how to perform UI personalisation for the system Global Administrator role. I've tried changing the "CMS Global Administrator" role, but this makes no difference since that role is only meant for editing application dashboard content for the default global administrator.

Thanks in advance for your help.

That's because you have it listed under the Users UI element that is hidden for global administrators. Please list it under Users (global) UI element.

Try in the Module adding it to the site (Modules -> [ edit your module ] -> Sites)

I know i ran into the same thing when i tried to show a non-global UI when the sites weren't set.

Thanks Trevor but the Custom module is associated with all sites on the Kentico instance.
