Problem:

Can an Alternative Working Folder be selected without making changes to the Default Working Folder?

Resolution:


  • Product Name: StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2005 R2
  • Product Component: Access Rights
  • Platform/OS Version: N/A


It is possible to restrict changes to the Default Working Folder in the client, but allow the selection of an Alternative Working Folder. This can be achieved by performing the following steps

  1. Login as a StarTeam Administrator
  2. Select PROJECT | ACCESS RIGHTS
  3. Select VIEW from the "Categories" pane
  4. Click ADD to add a User or Group from the centre pane
  5. Choose the user(s) or group(s) you wish to place this restriction on. Note: make sure type "Grant" is selected
  6. For each user/group, press the SELECT ALL button
  7. Uncheck MODIFY PROPERTIES, this will grant all functions to the users except the function to modify the default working folder
  8. Click APPLY
  9. Log out of the project

The user will now get a warning that they have insufficient permissions if they attempt to change the Default Working folder, but they will be able to select and change the Alternate Working Folder.
