Created role "tech support" for help desk to address user account issues.

Granted this role the following privs:

  Access administration menu

  Administer permissions
  Administer users
  View user profiles
  Change own username
  Cancel own user account
  Select method for cancelling own account

The Administration menu does not display for the user - I see the home icon and nothing else. I did enable clear cache just to see something will display and it does.

Yet if I go to /admin/people, the user with this role can perform the actions I desire. My issue is simply displaying the People menu item.

Any thoughts/pointers? This is a production environment, I need to be able to do this without adding new modules to the system.

I think you need to grant them "Use the administration pages and help"
