Allow duplication of sets of Access Control Rules from one product to another one in Windchill PDMLink

Allow duplication of sets of Access Control Rules from one product to another one in Windchill PDMLink

As per the suggestion in CS122017...      https://www.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS122017

and to help deal with the complexities involved with working through :

CS26836     https://www.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS26836

CS39334     https://www.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS39334

It would surely be useful to be able to do the following to the Access Control rules in a Product /default context, and maybe also in other contexts :

- delete them all in one go (possibly only allowed immediately after doing the backup step below)

- backup the whole set using an export command

- restore a complete set from a backup

- import a whole set from a Product or Product template

- filter or select from the imported sets of rules during import or restore

- compare two sets of rules to highlight whats the same ansd whats different

- move or copy a selected set of rules from one context or another directly (with feedback on conflicts, and choices to keep one or other...)

- move or copy rules up and down the heirarcy directly, to save having to recreate them and delete then one by one

This would go a long way to addressing the difficulties caused by :

- not being able to delete a Product (even having moved all content to another new Product), or

- not being able to update the 'design' of a Product by re-applying a newer iteration of the template used to make it, or indeed apply a fresh template

Once projects are deleted should be nice to delete even all related administrative domains
