ACLs

The following access control list (ACL) capabilities have been introduced in both the native Rational ClearCase client and the Rational ClearTeam Explorer:
  • ACL authorization
    In ClearCase 8.0.1, if access control list (ACL) authorization is enabled, the identities and protection modes for some object types are administered through policies, which define permissions for roles; and rolemaps, which map the roles to principals.
  • Create ACL policy view
    The ClearTeam Explorer now provides users with a create ACL policy view. You can use this view to create and define the principals, permissions, and rolemap for a new ACL policy.
  • Edit ACL policy view
    The ClearTeam Explorer now provides users with an edit ACL policy view. You can use this view to modify settings for an existing ACL policy.
  • Remove ACL policy
    The ClearTeam Explorer now provides users with the ability to remove ACL policies.
  • Create ACL rolemap view
    The ClearTeam Explorer now provides users with a create ACL rolemap view. You can use this view to specify principals, roles, permissions, and policies for a new ACL rolemap.
  • Edit ACL rolemap view
    The ClearTeam Explorer now provides users with an edit ACL rolemap view. You can use this view to modify settings for an existing ACL rolemap.
  • Remove ACL rolemap
    The ClearTeam Explorer now provides users with the ability to remove ACL rolemaps.
