User Settings button missing - but no changes where made in role permissions

The Edit Profile button (shown in the upper right corner of this image) has gone missing in all roles on my forum except for the admin role. But no changes were made in the garden role permissions. I tried modifying the edit/view profile permission, and the edit/view settings permission but could not get theEdit Profile feature to show up. Did something change in the forum platform to cause this and can Vanilla support help me get this button back ? This limits the user to change their email notification preferences and user name.

    Hi Ken,

    After looking into this, it appears that this is intentional. When a forum is put into "Connect" mode, the local profiles are disabled since the user data is managed by the remote SSO authority and synced on login. Does that make sense to you?
