We want to limit our non-engineering people so that they can only see a select few folders within Vault using the web / thin client. They also need unlimited access to the item master.
The way it is configured now they have no issues when viewing a released item to access the attachments and look at the files, most importantly the drawings. However when they look at items that are in the WIP state the Attachments display as Unavailable.
The Webclient configuration is set so that they can view files and items and the view only released option is toggled OFF for both items and files.I don't understand why they can see the attachments on released items but not WIP items? Nothing in the configuration of the webclient should be preventing this
Forgive me, but I am getting confused on the term "attachments".
I am an administrator at my company and I know how to give access to users
to certain folders that contain drawings, parts and assemblies. I just don't understand
what you mean by this term.
From within the webclient if I view an item I am presented with 4-sections: General, Bill of Materials, Where Used, and Attachments. When I click on attacments I am presented with all of the associated files on the item.
These typically would be the CAD files and would be the same list of files shown in the "associated files" section on the General tab when viewing items from the Vault "thick" client
Ok, I think I understand. First I believe you are using a different version of vault then I am. I am using workgroup and this is what I see.
Obviously this is different then what you are seeing.
If this is the case I have no experience with anything other then vault workgroup.
Makes sense now. I was just told the other day we are looking to upgrade to vault pro.
I am looking forward to it.
Sorry I couldn't help more.
