ACL Reaction (R)

Postby jdc » Wed Jul 07, 2010 1:10 am

Greetings once again,

In our ACL tests we have had some strange reactions which we do not understand.

First, our simple test project structure:
Project Definition
WBS element assigned to the PD.
WBS element assigned to the previous WBS element.
Network header assigned to the previous WBS element.
Network activity assigned to the Network header.
Material component assigned to the network activity.

In Project Builder, we add a user to the ACL of a network activity (lowest level of our project structure).
When the user attempts to select the network activity (or a component assigned to the activity) in Project Builder, the selection point moves (by itself) from the item selected (network activity or component) up the project structure to the next higher level in the project structure (typically the network header) then up the project structure again to the next higher level in the project structure (typically a WBS element). At no time during the selection point moving up the project structure has the user been able to see any detail. If the user attempts any standard report, they can see the structure of the project but no detail.

If we add the user to the ACL of the network header, we get the same results.
If we add the user to the ACL of the lowest WBS element to which all of the above was assigned, then the user is able to see the detail for the lower level items.

We have tested activating the ACL only on the project profile.
We have tested activating the ACL only on the network profile.
We have tested activating the ACL on both the project profile and the network profile.
We have tested various combinations of the inheritance settings.

Based on our tests, it appears that there is either a bug of some sort or the ACL at the network profile is useless.

Have we missed some setting somewhere that would allow a person to be assigned to the ACL of a network header or network activity and actually provide some level of detail visibility?

Thanks in advance and best regards,

J

This seems to be an issue with the inheritance settings.
