Model-driven App access by security role

    We have been successfully using model driven apps and deploying each for limited security roles. Everything has been working fine. We deployed the October Release in our test environments and actually went ahead and rolled it out to Production this week. Our existing MDAs are working fine. Today I am trying to make an app available for an additional security role. This new App was created in sandbox after the October Release was applied. I am following the same steps to authorize access for this security role and the settings seem to save ok. However, when I log in as a user with this security role, the app is not accessible.

    I have double-checked the test user's security role. I have confirmed that I am in the same environment where I enabled the security role for the app. I've published customizations (which shouldn't be necessary).

    Has anyone else had trouble granting access to additional security roles for model driven apps with the October release?

    Thanks!

    I wish I could call this one a rookie mistake, but I can't quite claim that any more! I thought about deleting my question, but then I thought someone might stumble on the issue as well, so I'm posting the resolution....

    I completely forgot about giving Read access for Model-driven apps to the security role. You can find it on the Customizations tab. Timing was such that I thought it was tied to the October release and I went down that rabbit hole.

    So, when you're giving a user access to a Model-driven app for the first time, make sure you have granted their security role "read" access to Model-driven apps!
