Hi @CFS ,


What’s the security role you’ve been assigned to the environment?

Please ask your Environment Admin to take the steps suggested in the following doc to check your role to the environment:

From the doc we know that for the users making apps which are connecting to the database and needs to create or update entities and security roles, should be assigned System Customizer role as well, along with the Environment Maker as Environment Maker role, has no privileges on the database.

Hope it could be helpful.


Best regards,
