I have two pages which need to have two page-scoped message boards. These pages belong to one organization. It appears as if the page-scoping is broken in LR 6.0.5. Could someone please confirm? I still see the information of the message boards in the default scope after I page scope one of the message boards.

We see the same in our environment. Here is some additional info and a related forums posting; let's see what we have in common.

Problem in setting permission of a document library of current page scope

We are seeing the same Page-Scoped Permissions issue in our organizations for the Calendar, Messageboard, Document Library, Image Gallery and Web Content Display.

When a portlet scope is changed from Default to (Current Page), Organization roles and Teams become unavailable in the permissions dialog.

Steps to recreate:
Create a new Organization
Add a private page
Add a calendar portlet to the page
Look at the config-> permissions tab (you should see "Organization
Member", "Organization Administrator", "Org Owner", etc. as options)
On the Scope tab, change from "Default" to ".. (Current Page)" and
Press 'Save'.

In our environments, when we switch back to the permissions tab, we no
longer see "Organization Members" or the Organization Teams we have
Instead, we see "Community Member", "Community Adminstrator", "Community
Owner" and other community-roles instead.
Changing the scope back to "Default" makes the Organization roles and teams visible again in the permissions dialog.

We see this behavior for the page-scopeable portlets; Calendar, Message
Board, Document library, Image Gallery, ... and web content display.

We see the same behavior on both private and public pages in an organization.

I also added uniquely-named teams to every community to see if a specific community's roles/teams were being pulled in to the dialog during the error. I did not see any community teams listed along with the standard community roles. As a follow-up test, I tried the same exercise in Communities:

Default-scoped and Page-scoped portlets in Communities have a similar issue; both scopes show community roles in the Permissions dialog, However, scoping to the current page does not allow the user to view the Community's Teams.

does anybody know is this has come to the developers' attention? I can't find a JIRA issue describing this problem.

i am also facing the same issue. In my case teams are coming but organisation roles are not coming. Instead of that some community roles like "community member" , "community content reviewer" are visible. Also suscription does not work in the portlet.

DO any one know the workaround of this.
