Usability Feedback: Viewing permissions for a lifecycle

Heather Wingfield (111) | asked Jun 18 '10, 10:22 a.m.
Customers have asked that there be a way see the what the different permissions settings are in a lifecycle. This would allow admins to see that they have correctly set up their permissions without going through a test asset . It also supplies additional information for users so that they know why they can or cannot do/see certain things.

What are you thoughts on this request? Is this a need that you've run across also when dealing with lifecycles?

Yes, the net net is as following:

There are now multiple places that control asset's visibility/accessibility:

    o Community's roles
    o Ability to give read/write permissions to a specific asset
    o Ability to give collaborators permissions (potentially overriding community permissions) on a state of a lifecycle

The problem is how do you manage/understand what kind of visibility a particular asset has. e.g., If I go to an asset details.. how do I know if it is (state) protected, or if I have special permission on it etc.
