I created a View Bulk Operation (VBO) that should allow an admin user to change the author of several nodes at once. Everything works fine when I am logged in as the root user. However, when I am logged in as a different kind of admin user, the VBO drop down menu is empty. I am assuming that there is a setting somewhere that is preventing the menu item(s) from appearing in the drop down list. What could be causing this to happen? I checked my permissions, but there did not seem to be a VBO related permission for the specific drop down option that I have enabled for this.
My setup uses a flag to target a user and a rules link to target an entity. the rules link triggers a 'rule component rule' which changes the author of the target node. I have a view table that renders this rule link as a column and also has a VBO column that can trigger the rule link for multiple columns.
Edit: I added a new test VBO action which calls a rule component rule (that only sets a Drupal message.) This option does not appear for the admin users either.
Edit: the admin user role has full read and write permissions for the content type.
Edit: After enabling all VBO permissions for everyone, the option is still not available.
Edit: I noticed that the Rules Link is not shown in the view for the other admin role.
Edit: After enabling the permissions for all Rule Links, the link is displayed, but still not the VBO option.
Edit: I was able to add generic VBO operations (which could be seen by the admin roles.) This problem only seems to effect VBO operations that are created by rules.
