Entry Point not visible in Navigation



we have a strange behaviour in the portal. We created a role and assigned Worksets, Pages and iViews to the role. The role is defined as an entry point.

So long everything worked fine.

We transported the whole package to an other system. On this system we assigned the role to a group xxx-all. nearly every portal user is member of this group. Now the following behaviour occured:

-Not every user can see this role, even it is assigned to the user (via the group)

-A user who was not able to see the entry point became able to see the entry point after assigning him to an other group (the admin role is assigned to this group)

-After assigning the role to a single user directly the user was still not able to see the entry point.

My first question is: Is it possible that the portal content permissions on the role have impact, whether the role can be seen or not. In my opinion those settings have no impact.

Or is there an other place in the portal where permissions can be set that maybe cause this behaviour?

Any other ideas?

Kind regards,
