Certain areas within a context, or even an entire context, can be hidden from a user’s view using one of the following methods:
Profiles: Profiles define which parts of your Windchill solution (for example, actions, tabs, and attributes) are visible to a user, a group of users, or the users within an organization. Your organization or system administrator creates and maintains profiles.
Configuring actions for roles: Clicking the configure actions icon on the Members table of the Team page for the context displays a window where you can select areas within your Windchill solution to hide from team members based on their role. So while profiles hide information for users, groups, and organizations throughout theWindchill system, the configure action hides information by role and only in the context you select.
Private contexts: Only context team members are granted access to a context by default, but an authorized user can define access control policies that extend access beyond the immediate context team. Users outside the context team can also access content that has been shared to a context in which they do have permissions.
The option to define a context as private is not available if the context creator selected a shared team.
