Admin user can't create users

So, I was using Horizon to try and elevate someone to the admin level without deleting their account and re-creating them.

When I tried adding them to the admin group, the master "admin" user lost their ability to create new users or instance flavours in Horizon, and the user who I tried promoting ended up with that ability. Trying to switch back, it broke so now neither have that ability.

How did this happen?

I've created a full MySQL dump of the keystone database (sensitive data changed) here:

I'm sadly extremely new to OpenStack and even used OpenCenter to even deploy it.

So, I guess my main question is, what roles for what tenants do I need to set to allow the admin user to create users and edit flavours?

Remember that the Admin role is set only on one tenant but applies to whole Cloud. Maybe you just need to switch to a different tenant and you will see the Admin tab in Horizon?
