Failed to execute the [velocity] macro. Cause: [The execution of the [velocity] script macro is not allowed

A client deleted a user that happened to be an admin…now pretty much everything is getting this error. I can’t go over to administer wiki etc without an error. Is there a way to put this user back in as admin?

Ok…steps I have done:

  1. Was able to navigate to the deleted user page and restore.

  2. Added admin rights to that user.

  3. Restarted xwiki

–still getting this error when I go to administer wiki…and I am using the superadmin account

Ok…I am just self solving thing don’t mind me haha. I noticed I did not add this user back to the admin group. Just trying to navigate to that page so I can add them. Any help on this?

Ok…figured out had to use object editor at the group level and add.

All is well in the universe. Can close
