Make a component read only/modifiable according to roles

Luca Martinucci (1.0k294112) | asked Mar 06 '13, 8:29 a.m.
Is it possible to make a component read only in a project area for some roles and modifiable for some other roles (e.g. Team Leaders, Project Administrators...)?
Or is this possible only by using different team areas?

This will have to be done using project or team areas if you want to restrict visibility. If you want to allow read access but no write access, you can define it according to roles. You give the role the permission to deliver but that is only scoped to streams, not to components.

If you need the fine tuning of the components, please open an enhancement or request it through IBM support.

In RTC is there a way to attach a component in read only (non-modifiable) mode on a stream ? Similar to ClearCase UCM when you dont check the option/policy to modify a component attached to a UCM project?

User case below:

Say that streamA is attached to comp1 and comp2. How can we make comp2 attached to streamA to be set in read only mode? I.e. developers cant modify or deliver content from comp2 ?

Bear in mind comp2 is being developed in streamB and should be only modifiable at one central stream.

streamA is only consuming comp2 in read only mode and periodically taking latest baseline on-demand basis from streamB.
