Procedure to hide certain attributes based on role or team area

V Niranjan (12544972) | asked Apr 16 '14, 10:01 p.m.

In RTC 4.0.3 is there a way to hide certain attributes based on role or Team area.

For e.g. in a Defect work item type we have added 5 custom fields and those should not be visible to certain users of a specific role or even if these users are in a team area.

Can these fields be made hidden to certain users?

Please let me know.

unfortunately this is not possible today. There are several work items that point into the same direction e.g.

Enhancement 312232 and
RFE 306072

I think this would be a neat capability and I would suggest you support one of the enhancement requests or provide a new one, so that development sees the increasing need.

Thanks Ralph. I see a increasing need for this.

Hi Niranjan,

This is not possible.
You can only restrict work item visibility based on Team Area or Access groups.
The mechanisms are described in two articles:
Rational Team Concert: Access Groups usage and Work Items visibility
Using the Work Item Access Restriction feature in Rational Team Concert

You mentioned you wish to hide them from the users. the only other option is to use the Operation Behavior and make them read only for a role. It doesn't hide them but they can't access. I would vote on the defect/enhancements posted for this to be considered in a future release. The only other option may be to look at the edit presentation options. They are not user dependent but they can be hidden based on the workflow, if empty and on creation.
