  2. On the Quick Launch, click Application Management.

  3. On the Application Management page, under Service Applications, click Manage service applications.

  4. In the list of services, select the row of the Business Data Connectivity Service Application that you created in Create the Business Data Connectivity service application in SharePoint 2013 and then click Manage and then Set Metadata Store Permissions.

  5. Enter the Farm Administrator account and any other delegate administrators if you have them and then click Add.

  6. For each account or group that you added that is an administrator of the Business Data Connectivity Service Application, select the Edit, Execute, Selectable In Clients, and Set Permissions checkboxes.

  7. Select the Propagate permissions to all BDC Models, External Systems and External Content Types in the BDC Metadata Store. Doing so will overwrite existing permissions checkbox.
