Is it possible to use loadFromFile to load ad-hoc acl?

Hi,

I am trying to set access permission for each folder, however, it would be very time consuming using GUI.

Is there a way to load ad-hoc acl like load "normal" access permission?

btw, I am using 10.1M050.

Many thanks

Hi Yifu,

I doubt if there is any loader for Ad-hoc ACL's . Are you using PDMLink or ProjectLink? There are also other options like associating domain to a folder and having separate set of access permission defined on that domain.

Hi Bhushan,

Thanks for the reply.

I'm using PDMLink. Associate different folder with different domain is indeed a good idea, however, the sub domain will inherit permission from parent domain, which makes me cannot think straight.

A

┣B

┗C

This might be childish, if I want to let a user/role can only access folder C through A, and keeping B invisible to user. What is the best practice of settings in Windchill?

Many thanks,

Yifu

Hi Yifu,

Are you simply trying to hide folder B to users or even the content. If you hide folder B by not granting Ad-hoc permission, I believe the objects in folder B would still be searchable if users have Read permission on those objects.

Going back to the idea of changing folder domains, you can always override the parent domain permissions by specifying explicit Deny permissions on the necessary object types in the sub-domain. Will that work for you?

Re: Is it possible to use loadFromFile to load ad-hoc acl?

Deny permissions would be the solution, just personally not want to use deny permissions. Thanks!

Yes, that's true. I should re-think the whole thing. Thanks for the help!
