I am upgrading Tridion 2013 CMS to SDL Web 8.5. After Installation of Web 8.5 and upgrading databases I have added a new user as Administrator in the Trustee table and was able to login with that user. Surprisingly, I can't see any Publications in CME. Can anyone please suggest the obvious issues.

    Things change. Admin rights are not set like that anymore. On mobile, so won't put a link, but it is documented.

You should add the user to the "SDL Web Content Manager Administrators" group instead of changing the old "Privilege" column in the database. That mechanism is no longer supported.

  • Thanks Peter, trick worked for me. I have assigned "SDL Web Content Manager Administrators" to the newly created user and it started showing the publications. Aug 9 '17 at 16:18
