Hi James,

It sounds like you might have a permissions issue.

Check to ensure you have the proper permissions to READ the object, and ensure you do not have any DENY permissions specified.

Whatever account you're logged in with, ensure the permissions for the attributes of that object are properly set.

I hope that helps.

Hi there James Belt,
The first thing you should do is to check the permissions of the object. You should be able to view the attributes, and if you're not you will need to change all available permissions to allow.
Just in case you can't or that doesn't work, there is a quick workaround for your problem – just use the Enterprise Admin account instead of your regular account you are using.
Best regards,
