I disabled, and re-enabled CiviGrant and now I can no longer access it. I tried to rebuild the menus and actually reproduced this on the demo site: Its not just the Grant and Grant Admin menus. if i try to use a link I get access denied. The grant component is working at the API level. Any suggestions on how to recover the component?

Go into your CMS permissions and check that your role has all the CiviGrant permissions. They are not automatically granted when you enable the component (though it is a little surprising that they would be revoked upon disabling it).

You also might try logging out and then in again.

  • You are right! It was a strange permission issue as I had 2 roles one with and the other without permission and YES, it appears there is a bug that when you enable/disable it resets the drupal permission. working now. thanks. Commented Jul 29, 2015 at 14:47

This is a known issue but so far hasn't risen to the top of anyone's to-do list. Patches from the community would be more than welcome.
