I have a problem with file persmissions for a particular file in Linux environment. The following are the steps for the problem

- I have create a file in linux, it has read execute permission and it has been delivered to stream
-I am trying to load the using scm commands on linux command but we see that executable permissions are  gone
ie to -rw-r--r-- but the expected result is -rwxr-xr-x--

- When we changed the file to executable in Jazz property, delivered to stream. Then only owner has executable permission  i.e. –rwxr-r-r
Also when I see jazz forum that RTC doesn't store the file permission. Is it still the case with version RTC 4.0.4 ??(we are using)

Can I get any solution/workaround??

RTC SCM maintains user-level execute permission. It does not store other permissions. If you want group permissions to be maintained you will have to write a script. 

If you want to see that functionality added to RTC, there's a work item about the issue
