The Description for the 'Project - Modify Baseline - All' global access right does not match the online documentation and it is vague as to what access it provides. The access right description states: Allows a resource to baseline all project. The right also allows a resource to view the general project properties and processes. The online documentation states: Allows a resource to baseline all project instances to which the user has edit access.
Examination of the global access right provides the user with the capability to create, update and delete baselines only; it does not include project 'edit' access. The Baseline access will only work when the user has access to 'edit' the project. Project 'edit' access must be granted separately to the user via global, OBS or instance access. If the user has Project 'view' access with the Baseline access, the user will not have permissions to create, update, delete baselines.
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected Results: Both the online documentation and the access right description should clearly state: Allows the user to create, update, and delete baselines for all project instances to which the user has edit access.
Actual Results: The current access right description is not correct as it does not indicate additional access rights to 'edit' the project is required. It states: Allows a resource to baseline all project. The right also allows a resource to view the general project properties and processes.
