Error description

  • a user has suggested that we mention that after baselining, ACLs
    will be preserved in the baseline and cannot be changed. The us
    e case is as follows:
    
    The scenario is where a module which has specific ACLs on certai
    n data. A user joins the project but has no access to the data i
    n the baseline and there is no way to modify the baseline ACLs s
    o the end result is that this data is not viewable by this user.
    
    We can add, perhaps as a NOTE in the ACLs or baseline section of
     the manual, that we recommend using ACLs based on groups rather
     than individual users. This way a user can be added to a group
    which has access to the data, resolving the problem.

    ACLs will be preserved in the baseline and cannot be
    changed. There is a documentation change that needs to
    happen
    

Problem conclusion

  • The following has been added to the topic entitled Rational
    DOORS groups:
    
    ... This is especially useful when you use the Rational
    DOORS baselining functionality. When you baseline a module,
    the access permissions to the baseline are frozen, and the
    only way new employees can access the baseline is if they
    are members of a group.
