Setting read access permissions

Owners and administrators can change the read access permissions for streams, repository workspaces, components, and files and folders. If a component or stream is owned by a team or project area, the process area permissions determine who can set read access permissions.

Before you begin

You must be an owner or administrator to change read access permissions on streams, repository workspaces, components, files or folders.

    2. In the editor, click the Change... button to the right of the visibility label.
    3. In the Select Read Access Permission window, select the permission level and click OK.
