Hello Team,

In our Project we are using Hierarchial Components.


I have Team Member role which doesn't have Modify the Stream Components permission Set.
Because we dont want Team member to create new component and deliver to Stream.

But this permission doesnt work when we change the Hierarchal component structure in Stream ie.

1. Create workspace for above given stream
2. Add Comp2 Under Comp1 as subcomponent.
3.Deliver to Stream.

Above Permission have no Effect.

Do you have any idea how we can restrict this?

Thanks in advance

 Note that your question does not match your example.   In your question you say that you don't want the team member to create a new component and deliver to the stream.   But in your example, the team member is not creating a new component, but rather is taking an existing component (that is already a member of the stream), and modifying how that component is located in the stream hierarchy.   So the answer to your question would be "the existing permission should control whether the team member can add a new component to the stream".   But the answer to your example would be "modifying where a component (that already is a member of the stream) appears in the component hierarchy of that stream (as David's answer indicates) would require a new (different) permission, which requires an RFE.

I do not believe there are permissions for modifying the component hierarchy.

We do have the following permissions as you indicated, but they do not apply to modifications to the component hierarchy:
-Add components to the stream
-Remove components from the stream
-Replace components in the stream

Please open an RFE/enhancement.
