Permissions Required When Working with Business Process Testing
Make sure you have the required ALM permissions before working with business components and application areas.
-To work with component steps in ALM, you must have the appropriate Add Step, Modify Step, or
Delete Step permissions set. You do not need Modify Component permission to work with component steps. The Modify Component permission enables you to work with component properties (the fields in the component Details tab).
-To work with parameters in ALM or in a testing tool, you must have all the parameter task permissions set in ALM.
-To modify application areas, you must have the separate permissions for resources required for modifying components, and adding, modifying, and deleting steps. All four permissions are required.
If one of these permissions is not assigned, you can open application areas only in read-only format.
There is some confusion with HP document KM183747 states:
"Directory where product is installed (i.e.C:\Program files\HP\QuickTest Professional, C:\Program Files\HP\HP Service Test, C:\Program Files\HP\Sprinter, C:\Program Files\HP\Unified Functional Testing, etc)"
The UFT 12.51 manual does not reference "C:\Program Files\HP\Unified Functional Testing". From experience "C:\Program Files\HP\Unified Functional Testing\bin\mic.ini needs to be read writable.
Can someone clarify what the permissions should be set?
