Not sure if you already got an answer for your query.
As such webMethods doesn’t have out of the box read only access to developer functionality. However we have implemented in a rather laborious way.
- Under Packages>>Management>>Browse Folders
Change all the custom package Write ACL to “Administrators”
- Now go to User Management >> ACL’s and add the group in Developer ACL
However every time when code gets deployed we need to check all the folders.
Note : 1) Make sure that user group is not under Administrator ACL.
2) Before making any changes take the screenshot of all the folders ACL’s
3) Make sure you don’t change the ACL’s of any Wm core packages.
I hope this helps…
