Recently I have faced the following issue.
If I login to STS with one of my test accounts that have only limited role in STS (R_STS_PT)) and can only see certain nodes in the hierarchy, I always get presented with Table View by default instead of the hierarchy view, which is preferred.
The problem is that I do not know why it happens. There is no option to switch to Hierarchy view from a table view for this account with limited STS access. When I login with the account that has a planning coordinator role however, the Hierarchy View gets displayed by default.
Anybody had the same issue?
