Cognos 11 Intelligence/ Reporting issue- assigning Permission


I would like add a 'user' or  a 'role- Cognos Consumer' to an existing report.  In order to do this,

  • I select the report
  • then click on the ellipsis (...),
  • then click on Properties,
  • click  on Permission tab
  • check the box for 'Override Parent Permissions' 
  • then click on  '+' to add.

When I click  '+', a panel opens up with text 'Select groups, users or roles' but nothing else where I can make selection (see image attached). Not sure why this is happening?  The role assigned to me as a user is 'Cognos Professional Author' (Global)and 'Role Administrator'


Has anyone here experienced this? Any insight ?

Many thanks,
