Is it possible to give a user only create access instead of "Edit Requests" access?

Hello,

 

Is it possible to give a user only create access instead of "Edit Requests" access in PPM 9.10?

Also, when a user with the "Edit Requests" access grant only clicks on the "Create" tab on the top of the screen, "Request","Asset" and "Proposal" options will be available. Is it possible to make only "Request" option available?

 

Thanks

The Edit Requests access grant is required to do anything with a request. Actions available to a user on a specific request type are controlled with the User Access tab on the request type. The only things you cannot prevent a user from doing is viewing and editing requests that they create, though status dependencies, field level security and rules can be used to limit even the creator's access.

 

We have a Case open with HP to remove the Asset and Proposal options on the dropdown list. This has been identified as a defect.

Hi kndlny,

 

You need to change in the menu.xml file to prevent the user by displaying the Asset and Proposal option, For more details you can go thru with "Customize your Interface" user guide.

Yes, you can do it as in the attached screenshot.

 

Regarding Asset and Proposal, the recommended way is to edit the xml tags in order to remove access for all licenses and access grants in menu.xml.

Hi Alex,

 

Thanks for the advice.

 

One more thingh though.

 

According to your attechment, can you please tell me how you made "Created By" line editable.

 

I am trying to uncheck the edit option but have not come up with a solution besides modifying the database.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

i have not made any special actions to be able to edit the Created By line. My system is running 9.12 - it is possible that this feature is coming from an upgrade.

 

cheers
