Owner Based Permissions


derry davis (23221916) | asked Apr 27 '09, 3:05 p.m.
Is it possible to limit permissions based on the owner of a given work item? For example, I want to limit the ability to move a work item from in progress to closed to the user in the 'Owned By' field.
It looks like it's not possible out of the box; maybe as a customization?
Thanks in advance,

Can anyone from Rational chime in on this? Is it not possible at all? Or can it be done by extending RTC?
Thanks.

I'm reasonably confident you cannot do this by just using the process
configuration GUI. But you should be able to do this by writing a
process extension that would be invoked by the workitem-save operation.

This kind of functionality is available for a specified role, but
currently the "owner" does not function as a role.

Work item 88779 (Add special "owner" and "creator" roles, that specifies
what the "owner" and "creator" respectively of an object can do to the
object) requests support for this. If you would like this
functionality, please feel free to register your support by adding a
comment to that work item.

Cheers,
Geoff

Hi there,

I stuck on the same problem like derrydavis. Is there still no simple
alternative to customize this thing?

Kind regard
