Managing ACL Permissions in the GUI
If you need to define new groups to reflect a changing business organization, Windchill RV&S provides the functionality for managing permissions. These include creating new ACL entries, changing permissions, and viewing groups. You can add or delete a principal for the required ACLs. You can also change the permissions for the principals, if required. After you create or modify the necessary ACLs, the updates are visible in the View Permissions window.
Depending on your selection in the View Permissions window, the following actions are available on the shortcut menu to manage ACL permissions:
