More Flexibility for VOB Element Protection
WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?     HCL VersionVault administrators often need to set up access controls on VOB elements to meet their companies' information security policy.  Operating system groups are a popular way to manage protections: users are assigned to groups, and those groups are used for element access checks.    This works nicely when groups are used for VOB element access control lists (ACLs), introduced in VersionVault 8.0.1, or for UNIX-style mode bit checks based on the VOB element's group ownership.  However, it only works as long as a single user only needs 16 or fewer groups to access all authorized elements.  VOB element ACLs can reduce the need for a user to be a member of multiple groups:  instead of having one user with multiple groups accessing elements each with a single group, you configure the ACL to protect elements to be accessible by multiple groups and each user only needs one (or a few) group(s) to access the elements.    For example, a shared component "S" would allow access to the groups representing the teams that consume that component ("A" and "B") and to the team that maintains the component ("S").  Then the developers of components A and B only need membership in the respective team-group (A or B), and the developers of the shared component only need membership  in group S.    But some administrators had extra burdens managing their group membership this way: their organization's security policy was built around separate groups for each component, with users assigned membership in the groups needed for all components their project used. ACLs could solve the problem technically but the management of ACLs to allow multiple groups per element had a higher administrative overhead than using a single group per element.    In the above example, developers for component A need membership in group...

A word from Semiwiki: VersionVault edition
HCL VersionVault and HCL Compass are grateful to be part of Semiwiki - the open forum for semiconductors professionals. Semiwiki's Mike Gianfagna shared a few words and his thoughts on the latest HCL VersionVault webinar.  He begins to discuss the webinar and takes a deeper dive into what he finds most interesting: "What followed was a detailed discussion from John about the unique and powerful capabilities of VersionVault. The VersionVault virtual file system delivers some significant advantages. To learn more, you’ll need to watch the webinar. The rest of the webinar consisted of a back-and-forth conversation between Howie and John as they discussed the product and fielded questions from the audience. I felt like I was eavesdropping on a planning meeting – very engaging and informative. The chemistry between these two folks made the whole thing work really well...Bottom line: HCL VersionVault delivers version control and more. So, the leading question posed by Howie was: “OK, if it’s so great, how come I never heard of it?”  The response is quite interesting." Read the full blog here to find out what else Semiwiki had to say about HCL VersionVault!
