How can we enable approvers to have read access after releasing?

hi, 

 

is there a simple way to give read access to approvers (when they are not in project teams) after item revisions released? or should we write a custom workflow handler? do u have any opinion for this? have you encountered a problem like this?

You can consider adding ACM nodes as below

If you want to give access privileges to approver while the data is in active workflow job: In ACM add new node under In Job (true) and attach an ACL with role=Approver or Approver (RIG) etc giving READ privilgs. You can also consider setting the ACL with the help of the handler EPM-set-rule-based-protection in workflow template depending on the scope of your requirement.

 

If you want to give READ access for the project data which is already Released: In ACM, add new node under InProject as HasStatus (Released) and attach an ACL for the group (which approver belongs to) with READ privileges

 

Note: Solution may vary depending on other customizations in your ACM rule tree.

hi Naveen,

also do you have any idea for giving read access to datasets after approver approves the workflow while workflow has not ended up yet? 

thanx

Assuming your datasets are part of the Targets, the best way to cater your requirement is:
1. Create a Custom ACL to give READ prvlgs for APPROVER Role
2.Attach it to the workflow task using EPM-set-rule-based-protection (after ReviewApproval Task) in your workflow template. ACL applies to all TARGET objects. The ACL is applied to the task and all subsequent tasks in the workflow process unless it is changed by another instance of the EPM-set-rule-based-protection handler or the process completes.

Again the solution may vary slightly depending on other customization in your site.

hi again,

i actually want to ask when the process passes to a new task that the signoff user is not a member of, is there a solution to solve read acces for this user? Afte approving his task he doesn't have any read acces until the process completed .

 

thanx.
