Symptoms

Create a new partition on bigip and a new user and give this user a 'manager' role to access this partition. This user can create new access policy in APM but it cannot add new software check agents (antivirus, firewall, peer-to-peer, windows HD encryption, health agent, patch management and anti-spyware) to that access policy from VPE (or tmsh). VPE throws following error: "Server request for 'addItemDialogout' is failed: Request status=500" tmsh throws error something like this: Access Denied: user (rbacUser) does not have create access to object (agent_endpoint_check_software_item)

Impact

Partition manager user cannot create software check agents.
