  6. 6. You’ll See…<br />The access Control difference between Intralink 3.4 & Windchill<br />How to reproduce Intralink 3.4 access control out-of-the-box in Windchill (hint: lots of clicks, headaches & indigestion)<br />How Fishbowl Solutions’ linkSecurityautomates the access control administration process so you can stop popping the antacids. <br />
  7. 7. So, #1…<br />What’s The <br />Difference <br />between <br />Access Control <br />In<br />Intralink 3.4 <br />and <br />Windchill?<br />
  8. 8. Intralink 3.4 has a “rigid” access control structure implemented within a single interface<br />
  9. 9. Windchill has “flexible” access control configured in multiple interfaces & used in a variety of ways<br />
  10. 10. Windchill Access Control Challenges<br />Objects do not simply inherit folder permissions in the expected manner<br />Team roles apply to the entire context. This yields large numbers of Products and admin overhead in order to maintain the access control granularity desired by many companies.<br />Ad Hoc policies have unexpected behaviors – they remain in effect after an object is promoted. Visibility is challenging - making them difficult to remove when done.<br />Configuration is complicated due to multiple interfaces. The administrator must decide how the components work together.<br />
  11. 11. Components of Windchill Access Control<br />Windchill Domains<br />A Product/Library has a single “Default” domain OOTB<br />The domain contains the access control rules<br />Domains can be assigned to one or more specific folders<br />Domains inherit access control rules of parent domains<br />
  12. 12. Out-of-the-box Domain Hierarchy<br />
  13. 13. Components of Windchill Access Control<br />Access Control Rules<br />Each rule applies to a hierarchical object type<br />Each rule can be applied to either a specific lifecycle state or across all lifecycles<br />Each rule applies to a user, group, organization, or role<br />Each rule contains permissions that either allow or deny operations such as Read, Create, Modify, Revise, etc…<br />
  14. 14. Rule Creation using the Policy Administrator Tool<br />
  15. 15. Components of Windchill Access Control<br />Team Page<br />Each Product/Library has a team page where users and groups are assigned to one or more roles<br />The roles may be global or local to the specific Product/Library<br />Note: <br />Shared teams may be leveraged if <br />you have common teams that apply <br />across multiple Products or Libraries<br />
  16. 16. Components of Windchill Access Control<br />Folder Properties<br />Allows a folder to be assigned to a non-Default domain<br />The preference: Security; Default Folder Domains; must be enabled to make this functionality available.<br />
  17. 17. Ok. #2. By now you’re probably asking yourself…<br />“So how do I regain my Intralink 3.4 folder access control using these components?”<br />
  18. 18.
  19. 19. Hierarchical structure must be mimicked to supply expected rights inheritance.<br />Example: an individual who has rights to modify in the Interior folder would expect rights to modify in Dashboard folder as well. If Dashboard domain was not a child of Interior this would not happen.<br />

  23. 23. Isn’t There An Easier Way?<br />Challenges with manually assigned Folder Access Control<br /><ul><li>Time consuming – many steps are required to configure a single folder.
  24. 24. Complexity - The Policy Administrator tool can be complex for casual users to learn. Product and Library Managers need to be familiar it to be effective
  25. 25. Risks - There is nothing to help validate that all roles, folders, and access control rules are correctly configured – it is simply incumbent on the administrator to do it right.</li></li></ul><li>#3 Our Solution: linkSecurity<br />Automate Manual Administration Tasks<br />Without modifying the underlying Windchill System<br />
