How do I grant read access to just one specific folder?

How do I grant read access to just one specific folder?

I was asked to grant a read-only access to contents in a single folder (and its sub-folders), within a product context to which this particular user does usually have access (they're not part of any team that has access to this product context).

Is that feasible?  And if so, how do I go about doing this?

I tried to use the "manage security" function and have granted "Read" access to this user / group, but now I don't know how they can navigate to this folder and add objects to their workspace etc...  - in other words, the product context does not show up in their list of places to browse...

Granting adhoc access to folders through manage security works only for Projectlink folders. If you working within the project, you have to look at granting folder level access control using domains. Steps are detailed in - https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS19998

For read-only access you can move your particular user to Guest role.

Thanks for the link!

I used the procedure now my user is able to "find" the objects in this folder.

They're still unable to browse to it, but that's OK.
