Access issues - CMDB Dashboard

OK, so figured out the solution to below problem
as per

navigate to self-service>dashboards>edit the dashboard>click the cog>click modify. Note that both the 'restrict to roles' AND 'requires roles' seems to affect the access permissions


User has the role itil / asset, but gets the following error when navigating to cmdb dashboard> CMDB View

but gets the following error:
"You do not have access to any dashboards. For more information, contact your system administrator."

when the fix suggested at
is applied, the error text changes to:
"Sorry! The CMDB Dashboard - CMDB View dashboard hasn't been shared with you"

the online documentation seems to suggest that itil or asset roles are all that is needed, and I have an example of another user with similar roles who does not get the error messages. I can't quite figure out where to configure the access

watch this space, ticket raised with ServiceNow to understand this better > actually closed this once I figured out the solution myself!

GlideRecord setValue

setValue(String name, Object value) Sets the specified field to the specified value. Normally a script would do a direct assignment, for example,  gr.category = value . However, if in a script the element name is a variable, then  gr.setValue(elementName, value)  can be used. When setting a value, ensure the data type of the field matches the data type of the value you enter. This method cannot be used on journal fields. If the value parameter is null, the record is not updated, and an error is not thrown!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
