    SOLUTION:

     

    Legacy ID:KA424070

      
    Cause
      

    Configuration issue - the Group Navigation Tab may (unknowingly) be assigned to yet another group.

      
    Solution
      

    Un-assign the Group Navigation Tab from that other group.

      
    Additional Information
      

    When creating a new Group Navigation Tab, it gets assigned to a default group, such as the "Management Console Administrators" group or the "database_login" group.

      

    Later on, when managing the tab assignment, this default assignment may get forgotten.
