Setting the Default Security Access for a Requirement Type

When you create a new requirement type, you can set its default security access. This access determines whether users can add, modify or delete requirements of this type. See related information on security and security profiles.

To set the Default Security Access for a Requirement Type

  1. Within a selected requirement type dialog box, click the Default Access button. The Default Access dialog box is displayed.
  2. Select the option button for the appropriate Access level. Each option allows users in the groups assigned to the default security profile the various levels of access described below:
    • None: Does not allow users to see this requirement type at all.
    • View: Allows users to see the requirements and their data, but does not allow users to create requirements.
    • Create: Allows users to see the requirements and their data, and allows users to modify and create requirements.
  3. Select the option button for the appropriate Delete level:
    • None: Does not allow the deletion of any requirements in that requirement type.
    • Owned: Only allows deletion of the requirement the user owns for that requirement type.
    • Any: Allows anyone to delete requirements of this type.
  4. Select the option button for the appropriate Modification level for each attribute in the list. This determines whether or not users can modify the attribute in requirements of the type.
    • None: Allows no modification to the particular attribute of the requirement type.
    • Owned: Only allows modification to the particular attribute the user owns for that requirement type.
    • Any: Allows any modification to the particular attribute for the requirement type.
  5. Click OK to save changes, or Cancel to exit without saving.
    Note: Caliber enforces security while creating a new requirement. You will be unable to modify fields unless permission is granted by your security profile or you are an administrator.
