Issue/Introduction

The Project - Modify Baseline All right description in Licensing portlets does not match with the description in the documentation:

15.9.2 PPM

Project - Modify Baseline All > Description: Allows the user to edit the baseline for all project instances to which the user has edit access.

Licensing portlets:

Project - Modify Baseline All > Description: Allows a resource to baseline all project. The right also allows a resource to view the general project properties and processes.

Cause

This was reviewed as per DE62053

Resolution

Here is how it works:

The 'instance'/'obs' right 'Project - Modify Baseline' right - Includes more access rights to the project. It includes the 'Project - Edit Management' permission to that project.  Therefore the user does not need additional rights added. 

The 'global' right does NOT include the right to Edit permissions to any projects and therefore the administrator must assign edit access to the projects --- basically the statement we already have is correct. 

(it says for the projects the user has edit access to)

The Global right:

Allows a resource to baseline all projects. The right also allows a resource to view the general project properties and processes.

The Administrator must grant additional permissions to the user for Project Edit ---  to create, edit, update or delete the Baselines.

Additional Information

The Product Management team is reviewing access rights to see where corrections are needed: at software side as well as documentation side.

A user story has been raised and Access Right data should consolidate on an upcoming release, still undecided.
