Can we create user with only read access to see the code via Designer?

Hello There,

Can we create a User with specific permissions that the particular user has only read only access to see the code and execute the services, rather than updating the code?

Thank you!

Hi Veera,

You can create an ACL for your users who you want them to Write in Developer and add them to that specific ACL and do not include the users who you only want them to Read or Execute.

You can also refer to the link below and follow the steps provided which is a discussion regarding to the same topic.

Veera – As Roham specified, you can do it with ACL’s. You can create your custom ACL which has only Read & Execute permissions and assign the same to the user/group of users.

Thanks,

Hello Roham & MR as173d,

Excellent! The Article helped me. I was able to achieve what i want to. Now i need to figure out a way to give only read access to this newly created Group READ access to Admin Console.

Hope this article helps - http://tech.forums.softwareag.com/techjforum/posts/list/44921.page. Will check it out. If you know anything else, please let me know.

Thanks a lot!

I don’t think you can achieve that simply via ACL. there use to be a ISReadOnly package long back.

below is link for 6.5 version. you can try it with your IS version. it may work

Please check the IS Administrators Guide for details.

After creating the ACL and assigning the Users/Groups to it, place a “.access” file in the pub-folder of the WmRoot package or modify the existing one to assign read-only access to the new ACL.

Hi Veera,

Can you please share the steps involved in accomplishing the above. We need to provide only read and execute access to certain users, please advise on how you achieved this.

Thanks,
