Re: User Control Access

Recommend in Windchill you create ACLs by Role or Group, not by User.

If you have multiple organizations in your Windchill system, suggest you create ACL at the organization level. Do you want the ACL to be available within every Product or Library Container in the Org? If yes, create the ACL in the /Default (your org)/PDM domain. If No, then you want to create ACL in the Product or Library Containers.

1) Log into WC as org admin

2) Open "Browse" tab

3) Click on Organization Icon and select "Utilities"

4) Select "Policy Administrator",authenticate to the pop up window.

5) Click + sign to expand Default (organization - your org), click on PDM (organization - your org), then click the "Update" Command Button.

6) In the "Administrative Domain" GUI, select "Access Control" tab, click "Create" command button to create your new ACL.

7) In the "Access Control Rule" GUI, click on "Help" and it will explain the rest of the steps for you.

You can create profiles on the site or org level. Check Windchill Help Center for further details on Profiles.

Re: User Control Access

Hi Luar,

What Michael said is accurate. It is recommended that Access Control Lists (ACLs) are used for this, which are configured from the Policy Administrator utility.

It is also best practice to set permissions based on groups or roles rather than individual principals.

As mentioned in the step 7 by Michael you can see the help center documentation on this by clicking the (?)help icon.

Please mark Michaels response as correct so other people in the community can see his answer.

Thank you,

Jarrett
