Instruction for ClearQuest Web 7.0.0.x

ClearQuest Web 7.0.0 did not originally support the Modify action when in restricted mode. The capability was added in version 7.0.0.1. There is no check box option in Site Configuration. It requires a manual configuration change to a file, pl.properties, on the Web server.

  1. Open this file for editing, assuming a default installation path:
    C:\Program Files\Rational\Common\rwp\EmbeddedExpress\profiles\profile1\installedApps\DefaultNode\RationalClearQuestWeb.ear\CQWebModule.war\WEB-INF\classes\pl.properties
  2. Locate this line in the file:
    ENABLE_MODIFY_RESTRICTED=false
  3. Change the value from false to true.
  4. Restart the ClearQuest Web and Rational Web Platform (RWP) services.


After making this change, the Modify action will now be present in restricted mode.

For more information, refer to the About restricted mode topic in the ClearQuest Knowledge Center for 7.0.0.



Instruction for ClearQuest Web Java 2003.06.13 through 6.16

ClearQuest Web Java, introduced in version 2003.06.13, did not originally support the Modify action when in restricted mode. The capability was added in version 2003.06.16. For details, see the Documentation Supplement for 2003.06.16 and technote 1265666.



Note: A Restricted Site is a distinct preference versus restricted users or restricted groups. It is not necessary to choose the Restricted Site preference if you only wish to restrict several users or groups. Restricted Site will apply this behavior to all users of all groups.
