GUEST - Shared Queries


Dave Draeger (4172) | asked Oct 15 '07, 2:17 p.m.
Is there a way to create new "shared queries" that can be run/viewed by an
unauthenticated web user (ie. GUEST)? I tried creating a new query and
sharing it with the user "GUEST" but it still doesn't show up in the web
"Shared Queries" list. I only see RFS, Recently closed, Recently created,
and Recently modified. I tried this with the M3 build of Jazz.

Anyone know how to add to this list?

The sharing functionality is not fully available in the WebUI yet, but
will be for M4.

One thing I have found is that if I login and run a query that was shared
only with the team, I can execute that same query as Guest and it doesn't
prompt me to login. So as long as a user knows the queryID they can execute
any query. Not sure if that is a security issue, but for now it provides
what I wanted.

We are constantly extending the range of operations guarded by process
permissions. Executing queries will be one of them, but as you point out
correctly, a query can be executed by anyone right now.
