Database enumeration value update, requires permission to modify process specification


Udaya Puthuraya (881421) | asked Mar 13 '13, 4:01 p.m.
When  DB enumeration is used for custom attribute,
Permission  WorkItems:SaveEnumeration:CreateNewEnumerationValue  is set.  "allow to add new literals" check box is also set in the  Editor presentation for the attribute.  This allows the end user to create a new attribute.

If the end user needs to update any  existing enumeration value or sort the enumeration list(Move up or down) through eclipse client,  I had to give them the permission to modify the process specification. ProjectConfiguration:Permissions:Process:SaveProjectArea:ModifyTheProcessSpeciifcation (Even though DB enum. values are stored in the Database, why it requires permission to modify the process specification, to update the enumeration values.).
Is there any alternate way of doing it, without giving this permission to modify the Project area process specification ?
or
DB enumeration feature is limited to just adding new enumeration ? (when used without the permission to modify the process specification)

looks like Create enum entry is a permission, but modify is not separated.

Can this(to separate modify)  be taken as an enhancement ?
