You do not have the right to 'Subscribe to objects'

We are trying to set up a scheduling user in business objects. This user would have rights to schedule only, and only in given company codes, based on authentication we have set up. To help, we created a custom access level in CMC and have applied it to the scheduling user group within a particular folder. When we log on to launchpad as the scheduling user and attempt to set up and run a publication from the folder, it errs with "This error occurred. Sorry, you do not have the right to 'Subscribe to objects' (ID:62) for 'dbahr' (ID: 14670237). Please contact your administrator if you require this right."

We are the administrators, but do not know how to resolve this error. We have tried various added rights to our custom access level, but that is not helping.

We are running Business Objects 4.2, SP6, Patch 3.

    Let's say that the scheduling user that you've created is named Fred. Fred needs to have the "Subscribe to objects" permission on the dbahr user.

    More globally, all users who will be creating publications need to have this permission over all users who will be recipients of the reports. So let's say Fred is in a member of a group named Scheduling Users, and dbahr is in a group named Regular Users. Go into the user security settings of Regular Users, add Scheduling Users as a principal, and assign the "Subscribe to objects" right. You could, of course, use the CAL you created -- just add the "Subscribe to objects" right to it, then apply that to the Regular Users group with Scheduling Users as the principal.

    And to reiterate -- this has nothing to do with the security settings on the publication, but on the recipients.
