Making a file read-only in NX 11?

Creator

Hi there,

 

How can I save a part file as read-only, so that other people can only access a read-only version and cannot make changes until they save-as? There is surprisingly little documentation on this.

 

Thanks!

Native or Teamcenter?

 

Native mode you deal with the operating system access control.

On Windows, you can "right click on the file" -> Properties -> Check the "read only" tab (but then it is read-only for you as well)

Or try to set up "right click on the file" -> Properties -> "Security" tab stuff.

If on a network share, you may need to talk to the admin of the network share to set something up.

 

Teamcenter - depends how Teamcenter is set up.  You could change it so only the owner of a file has write access.  You may then also have to restrict who can change ownership.  There are other ways as well (projects, etc.)  As well as manual changing "Access" settings
