How can I set an RTC repository read-only while keeping some SCM functions active?

Neal McKegney (551321) | asked Aug 26 '15, 1:12 p.m.
We've moved our users to a new repository, but left the source code history on the old repo.  We want to lock down the old repository to prevent updates, while still allowing users read access to everything (that they previously had access too)

I thought we could use the JazzGuests repository permission group, instead of JazzUsers, but this also prevents users from creating personal workspaces. 

Short of stripping all permissions from each project/team area, is there any way to accomplish what I'm trying to do?

Users can always create new change sets in their workspaces, so if you let them have workspaces, they will be able to create new change sets.
You can prevent them from delivering those change sets to a stream by removing stream update permissions from all project and team areas.

I was hoping for a repository wide solution, restricting all user permissions, but it sounds like I'll just have to do it on a project by project basis.
