This article provides brief information and steps to resolve the issue when all NCM jobs are not visible and cannot make any changes to User Roles. 


There are certain NCM functionalities that do not work when an NCM role is set/assigned incorrectly to the user account.

For example:

  • when modifying node properties
  • when viewing other users' jobs
  • creating jobs
  • running scripts
  • adding or removing nodes from Node Selection



NCM 7.0 or later



The issue is caused by a NCM role is incorrectly assigned to the user account.

  4. Click Edit.
  5. Scroll down and expand the Network Configuration Manager Settings.
  6. Assign/Select the relevant role such as Administrator Role.
  7. Click Submit.
