How can I assign super admin role to someone in 2.05+? It isn't working for me at all. I have given a user all permissions globally and they do not get the permissions.

I have tried giving the user a parent_id of 0 in the db and that didn't work either.

Suggestions anyone?

Only the original superadmin (user ID 1) can create new superadmins.

Thanks for the reply. I had seen that last night prior to leaving work and was going to explore that very aspect.

We do have two main super-admins, the user that set up limesurvey, and then another one created by that user (who are the same person in this case) who logs in through auth plugin that circumvents the usual limesurvey login. We have CASified the entire admin folder by rules and then use PHP_AUTH_USER as the login id.

SO I set up the survey tool as one user with a traditional login/password, created another user with my enterprise id and gave that user super-admin privileges, and then installed our Auth plugin.

THis setup worked previously (prior to 2.05), but now my admin users are no longer admin users so I guess something changed with that release.

Again, thanks for the reply.

To close this one off, in the end i just manually added a superadmin record for the users in the lime_permissions table. Cowboy changes ftw.
