Model Drop Down List Empty RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello - I am new to MDS and have watched some of the MSDev walk through sessions.  I have MDS installed and created a new model with entities.  I found that when returning to the main page (default.aspx), the model and version drop down lists are still blank.  Is there something I have yet to do, is this a bug that a hotfix/patch needs to be applied for, or is this permissions related?  I would like to know as I cannot (from the default.aspx) select the model and "Explore".

  • Hi,

    It may be due to you not applying the cumulative updates. If you haven't installed the latest update already, its worth doing so anyway. They are:

    CU7:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2507770

    CU8 (seems to have a few issues if you are upgrading from CU7)

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2143880

    Failing that, it may be due to permissions. The MDS system administrator will have access to all models. Assuming thats not you, get the MDS system admin to grant you permissions to the necessary model. The links below should help:

  • Hi Interstorm,

    Did this one get resolved by Jeremy's tips (latest CU or permissions/roles)?
