Insufficient Privileges for system administrator

I've a developer edition and which mean I'm the system administrator, I develop some pages and classes and after I logout I don't know exactly what happened to my account, for every link it displays me the following error :

 

Insufficient Privileges
You do not have the level of access necessary to perform the operation you requested. Please contact the owner of the record or your administrator if access is necessary.

I tried it with my other developer edition account same problem again. I've all the credentials for my account i.e.. username, password, security token. Don't know if it is a bug or my problem.??

Using the creds you emailed me privately, I was able to do the following:

 

1) create a Force.com Project in Force IDE

2) Rt click on the Project name in the Project list and choose Properties

3) Expand Force.com and choose Project Contents

4) click Add/Remove, then select Permission Sets in the list

5) Click Appy

6) Close the Properties Window

7) Expand the permissionsets in the Project window

8) Edit a Pemission set (I used the Source view not the table view)

9) Save the changes

10) Deploy successfully to your org.

 

My test used the Master_Viewer permission set -- I'll email you privately the specific changes I made so you can undo them if needed.

Did you by some chance set your default home page to one of the pages you created and somehow the permissions aren't set?

actually i imorted an app from one of my sandbox account to my developer edition, obviously the permission sets had to come along with this app..and i believe the permission sets are the cause for this.

it didnt work Tanvir

Assuming you don't have another account in the org with a different profile, the only thing I can think of trying is using Force IDE  , Workbench, or the Metadata API to remove the app you imported and set your permissions back.  This is based on a guess that the package changed permissions and you've basically locked yourself out.  The IDE tools use the API and don't require you to access a specific page to make org changes.  However, if your account permissions no longer allow your user API access, then I can't think of another way around.

I'm using Eclipse Force.com IDE, i imported whole of the content of my ID (Which is blocked), i deleted the app (that caused problem), now i'm trying to change permissions sets Metadata, but when i i try to save the permissions sets it saves only locally. and i'm still stuck now.. can u give me ur personal E-Mail id i'd mail to u the credentials so that u could check urself.

I have a similar problem. With my system adminitrator account, no matter what page/tab I try to access, I either get the /secur/NoAccess.jsp page or i'm redirected to a login page where I'm asked to log in with an account that has appropriate access.

I did deploy changes (including permission sets) from a sandbox today, but everything seemed to be working fine until I logged out and logged back in...

I'm using mavensmate to assess the metadata, but I can't seem to change and deploy permissionsets. In fact, I'm only able to view portions of the permissionset source, like I don't have the right access for those, either.

Help?

Hi Matt,

Please go and Check on Your profile That  "Api Only User"   is Checked or Not.   Most of time It happens. If it checked uncheck it and it will resolve.

@Virendra,

Yes, the API Only User permission was the issue. Thanks!
