    Re: How to restrict folder access in test plan.

    Hi Sateesh,

    Using the data hiding mechanism in the customizations you will be able to hide the tests, but the folders will still be visible to all.

    I remember trying to do the same thing once and I ended separating my project in 2.

    Good Luck,

    Re: How to restrict folder access in test plan.

    Thanks for the reply Joel,

    I am not able to hide the tests in the data hiding mechanism,is it possible through coding?
    Do you have any code to make the folders invisible?

    Thanks

    Re: How to restrict folder access in test plan.

    Again,

    I am not aware there is such a code for the folder, but if there is someone here will surely provide it soon.

    On the other hand hiding test via the data hiding is done using the Customizations GUI. Go to Tools > Customizations > Groups > [the group you want to filter] > Change > Test Plan > On the bottom you will see a link called Test Plan Data-Hiding Filter.

    You can use the filter with any criteria, if you want to hide a whole structure your easiest choice is to filter via the Subject Field.

    Re: How to restrict folder access in test plan.

    hi Joel,
    i tried this on QC9.2 with patch 7. it is not working. i am still able to see the folder for that group and have access normally even after setting the filter at subject level.

    Thanks

    Re: How to restrict folder access in test plan.

    Hi

    As Joel has explained above, you will not be able to hide the folder tree. The only data that you hide with the data- hiding mechanism are the tests in the module.

    I am also interested in hiding the folders but still haven't received any solution.

    P.S. If you still can see the tests in the hidden folder, check if the user who sees them isn't also a member of another group.

    Re: How to restrict folder access in test plan.

    Hi,
    we cannot have a restriction on folder levels for the users. Even you put a filter then that will be user dependant, that is, your filter setting is not applicable for any other user.

    Regards,
    Dhanesh
