Reply to: "access group are new since 6.0.1".

Technically this is inaccurate. Access Groups have been around since RTC 4.0 and could be used to customize the read access of work items. In RTC 6.0.1 however, access groups could be used to customize the read access of SCM artifacts.

Java Client API code:

IAccessGroupClientService clientService = (IAccessGroupClientService) repo.getClientLibrary(IAccessGroupClientService.class);
IWorkItemCommon workItemCommon = (IWorkItemCommon)repo.getClientLibrary(IWorkItemCommon.class);
accessGroup = (IAccessGroup) workItemCommon.getAuditableCommon().createAuditable(IAccessGroup.ITEM_TYPE);

//Add at least one IProjectArea, ITeamArea or IContributor
accessGroup.add(projectArea, ReadAccessContextType.MEMBERS);, null);
