Hi there,

When adding a new file to SCM, I need to restrict access to a particular group if the name contains a certain prefix like "BD_XXX_ *" automatically.

So is there another option to implement this action other than creating a custom Advisor?

Is there any option for implementation with the API?

Yes, the customer was so gracious and let me share the work we did. Your question

As far as I know the ways to do this are
  1. A Participant (follow up action) that changes the read access permissions e.g. during checkin - problem: user that performs the checkin needs to heave the permission to change the read access.
  2. An asynchronuous tool, that does this out of the context e.g. using an admin user - it is not immediate but it would be possible to use a special account. Conflicts?
In both chases you would use the API.
