Exclusion of IM Project & Dynamic groups from Admin Staging Set up.

Exclusion of IM Project & Dynamic groups from Admin Staging Set up.

Till the present release of Integrity 11.2, in an Admin staging set up,

     i. Creation & update of IM Project (Workflow & Documents Project),

     ii. Update of existing Dynamic Group

is not possible directly at the Production Server.

 

Users need to request administrator to create the IM Project and set its dynamic group membership at the staging server and then push / promote those changes to Production Server using Admin Migration Wizard.

This is required to be done everytime for each and every small changes in Project / Dynamic Group.

 

I believe creation / update of Project & editing of existing dynamic group membership is a end user activity rather than an administrative tasks.
It does not change the Integrity Object model but rather it only defines the user access to the new Projects.

 

So, my idea / request is to EXCLUDE the IM Project and Dynamic group functions out of Admin Staging promotion list.

 

Even in context of Windchill, it is just like creating a Project / Product container and then setting up a team of that Project / Product container and that is clearly separated from administrative tasks.

 

Having worked with multiple customers, I sensed this as a pain point with almost everyone them who uses Admin Staging set up.
