PeopleSoft Favorites – Authorization Error

Discovered some users today that couldn’t add favorites in PIA. Whenever they would try to add one they would get the following error: Authorization Error — Contact your Security Administrator.

Authorization Error - Contact Your Security Administrator

Turned out to be a simple permissions problem, they were simply missing a delivered web library under their permission list; the WEBLIB_PTIFRAME.


Also, make sure you grant them Full Access under the library.

PTIFRAME Full Access
