I can see the locations, but the creating clearly doesn't work.

It don't allow me to create it with error:
"You don't have permission create_locations with attributes that you have specified or you don't have access to specified organizations or locations"

Created redmine issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/29012 from this bug

Comment 7 Ondřej Ezr 2020-03-04 00:02:03 UTC
This clearly works in satellite 6.4, but doesn't work in upstream.
Amaani could you please confirm what version have you tested this on?

I've further noticed, that upstream while cloning the role, the unlimited flag in filters for the cloned role are unselected. There was a recent change in this flag seting, I'd susspect that could be the cause.
The flag got unselected on clone and than the filter is used with an empty search, what would not work.

Comment 9 Ondřej Ezr 2020-03-12 01:20:26 UTC
We've digged deeper into this and the actuall issue appears to be present only if user assigns the newly cloned role some locations. Than user with this role can manage only locations assigned to this role, so he can't create new one.

That's actually correct behaviour, only bit unclear UX.
