Arg this is so frustrating.

I cant find the nix_action_lookup and I can't find the IDS config.

How do i troubleshoot this error.

Is there a btool shortcut to find where this permissions issue is coming from and where the files and config is so I can update permissions.

I believe nix_action_lookup is defined as vendor_action.csv
Go to Manager>Lookups>Lookup Definitions> and Select All Apps. You should find it in that list.
Set the permissions to Global.

My fault. You are failing on the Automatic Lookup permissions, not the Lookup Definition permissions.
Make sure Manager>Lookups>Automatic Lookups> permissions are set to global.

Luke,

It's so easy when you know where to look. I did find the definition there and it was set to global. I changed the permissions to Read&Write for all and am still getting the error message. I wouldn't think I would have to do anything on the indexers for this. I shouldn't have to have the lookup on the indexer for any reason should I?

Can you help just a little more please.
