Missing permission: AdministerSystem for 'upgradeconfiguration'?


I’ve been monitoring the server diagnostics for a while and had the below message so many times it’s become annoying enough to ask how to get rid of it!

You do not have permission to perform this action. Please contact your Octopus administrator. Missing permission: AdministerSystem (*****@*****com requesting http://octopus/api/upgradeconfiguration 43552566295a4936ac98f1fc7c3ca5cd)

So I’m on OD 3.11.2 and all the users are ‘normal’ users who have Project Deployer, Project Release Manager, Project Initiator and Project Contributor rights for a relevant Project Group and for anything but Live which is on a seperate login.

Attached is an export of a user with redacted environment and project names.

I’ve got rid of it I think by switching off the update notifications, but I like them and just want to suppress the warnings…

Any help?

Actually the part about the update notifications didn’t work so ignore that :frowning:

Hi Matt,

Thanks for getting in touch. I easily reproduced the issue and you are correct that the permission wasn’t correct. I created a GitHub issue for this and you can follow it’s progress here: https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/3276 That said, it was a one line change so it’ll be included in our next patch release. :slight_smile:

Hope this helps!


Awesome thanks Rob, look forward to upgrading to 3.11.10+ soon :slight_smile:
