Disabled Facet Presentation Details

Hi,

In my Sitecore we have a custom user role that is a member of Sitecore\Developer. When we login using an account that is a member of this custom role, we cannot edit presentation details of the facet (like: Ordering, field name, Number of Values etc…) All of these inputs are disabled.

This role has full access of the "search node" and we can edit all other fields of that item. If we login using the regular admin account, then we are able to modify the facet presentation details. Do we need to add a specific role to this custom group?

We're using Sitecore 7.2 with Coveo Sitecore Coveo for Sitecore 72 3.0 (974)

Thanks

Is the user able to edit the component properties of the "Coveo Search" component? Following the description of the problem, I guess that the user is not able to edit them as the "Coveo Search" and "Coveo Facet" components are both defined in the presentation details of the Sitecore item.

You are right the user is unable change the presentation details as well. Do you know what role has the privileges to change the presentation details?

Not yet unfortunately. I'm looking for it and I'll answer the question once I find the required role.

I think the role needed to edit any component properties is the "sitecore\Sitecore Client Developing" role in Sitecore 7+.

It seems that in Sitecore 6, the role needed was "sitecore\Sitecore Client Designing".

I tried adding the Sitecore Client Developing role but still no go… I might have to take it up with sitecore

Is your user able to edit the component properties of a non-Coveo component? If he isn't able, this is a Sitecore problem.
