Restricting the read and write access to components and folders in RTC


vinay kumar bondugula (5011735) | asked Oct 10 '14, 3:32 a.m.
 Hi

I am trying to restrict my components and folders permissions to specific teams in my project area in RTC. I have created two components and two team areas. I have 4 users in JTS and added two users in team A and two users in team B. Then I tried restricting component 1 by changing the owner to Team A and visibility to Team A and component 2 by changing owner to Team B and visibility to Team B. Now with a user from Team B, I have loaded component 1 and worked on the files, it did not prompted me any error. Actually component 1 access is restricted only to Team A. The same happened with folders also.

Can anyone please guide me to restrict the components and folders.

Hi Vinay,
You mentioned you set the component 1 visibility to Team A. Have you set the visibility to "Team Private"?

Hope the document

I have set the visibility of component 1 to Team A and component 2 to Team B, but still users from Team B are able to load the component 1 and work on the files of component 1.

Thank You

When you say you have "set the visibility of component 1 to Team A", when you open component 1 in the Eclipse component editor, is both the "Owned By" property set to "Team A" and the "Visibility" property set to "Team A" ?   (And if not, what are the values of those properties?)

I have set both the visibility and owned by property to respective teams, and the values of component in eclipse editor shows the same.


Thank you.

I'd suggest working with support.   My tests (in 5.0.1) show the visibility being respected.
