    Default User not seen in Metada Editor->User permissions screen

    I have set custom database based authentication.

    Set the security context to JDBC and provided related details.

    I am using the login present in the Users table in that database and confirmed the credentials are picked from that table.

    However when I try to run http://localhost:8080/pentaho/serviceaction, provide user credentials, it returns an empty list of users/roles/acls in the XML.

    Similarly when I try to assign User permissions for the Physical table, in the User permission screen I do not see any users.

    Does anyone know, what step I have missed, due to which the user list does not appear?

    I'd like to know that as well, I have the same problem, and there's nothing about that in the doc I have

    There is an issue with escaping user and role names that contain illegal XML characters. Do any of your users or roles contain ampersands? Ignore the case description, but http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/BISERVER-5487 demonstrates the problem. Do you have any errors in your server log?
