Some users are unable to access the Application/Administration menus since CA Clarity PPM was upgraded to 13.3. It only affected half the user base and it seemed to be due to the client computers keeping old CA Clarity PPM 13.2 cookies. 


The issue appeared to be related to the Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) browser keeping old CA Clarity PPM application cookies cached.

  1. Select Tools (via the Gear Icon) > Safety > Delete browsing history....
