Time for Promotion Request to be free of CAD ACL (Modify or Set State)

Time for Promotion Request to be free of CAD ACL (Modify or Set State)

For Customers using Promotion Request:

It is log over due for Promotion Request to have its own ACL similar to how Set State has (Both Lifecycle Transition and ACL)

Currently:

1. You setup Lifecycle Transitions; Example Released may go to Obsolete

2. But you want to limit this to only a specific group/role who can promote:  (Preference: Access Check for Promote = yes)

Common Issue:

CAD Document  State=Released.  Typical ACL:  Read, Download, Revise for CAD Authors.

A. Add Set State (Normal Choice means that you can not configure Set State in all cases... So Customers want Group CAD Authors to have abiltity to Promote to Obsolete;  But not Set State to Inwork or Obsolete;  But they may give a CAD Auditor that right.

B. Modify;  Effects End Users giving authority to change attributes which is not common on a Released Component.

Would be Much preferred to have separate ACL PromotionRequest

PS

Why does Change Permission control Ad Hoc Security in PDMLink AND the Ability to Share to ProjectLink.  Another set of ACL functionality that should be split.
