Error description

  • When specifying groups within ClearTeam Explorer, only the
    primary group is reflected in any newly created web views
    
    
    
    ClearCase WAN Server 8.0.0.3
       ClearTeam Explorer on Windows 2008 R2
    
    WebSphere Application Server 8.0
    
    Windows 2008 R2 Server
    
    
    To Reproduce:
    
    1)  Create a User Account and add the user to 110+ Groups
    
    2)  Login to the Windows 2008 R2 server as the newly created
    user
    
    3)  Open the ClearTeam Explorer (CTE)
    
    4)  In the CTE, please go to ?Window -? Preferences -? IBM
    Rational ClearTeam Explorer -? Groups?
    
    5)  Pick a different primary group than assigned to the user and
    then choose two secondary groups.  The groups chosen should be
    lower in the list of the ?creds -w? output.
    
    6)  Login to the WAN server within the CTE and make a new View
    
    7)  Once the view is created, please check the view permissions
    outside of the CTE from the command line:  cleartool describe
    -long -prop -full ?view tag?
    
       Note:  You will observe that the View?s primary group matches
    the CTE setting but the secondary groups do not contain the two
    groups listed within the CTE
    
    Workaround:  None
