: : : Is there any way to restrict check-out access on a Read Only view (based
on promotion status)?
: : : Using the View/Access Rights menu, I get the message :

: : This issue regarding access rights on Read Only views had been previously noted by other customers of ours, and had been entered as CR #9166. I have added your name to the list of customers requesting this functionality. At this time, there really isn't a workaround but I'll keep you posted as this CR progresses.
: : Regarding your last question about ways to keep the configuration status of a floating view, would you be able to expand on that a little more? A simple scenario might help.
: : Let us know if you have any other questions and we'll be glad to help.

: Keeping the configuration of a floating view, is the same purpose as assigning access rights to a R/O view :
: 1 - Create a floating view
: 2 - Assign access rights (e.g. testers)
: 3 - View/ Select configuration menu
: Select Promotion State Configuration
: (e.g. TEST)
: 4 - Close the view.
: 5 - When reopening the view, it has back the "current configuration" status. I'd like to freeze it in a promotion state configuration, to make specific people having access to specific promotion state (e.g. only testers may check-out files in TEST promotion state)

To keep the configuration of a floating view, this is what you need to do:
1 - Go to a floating view.
2 - Assign access rights (e.g. testers).
3 - Create a new derived, read only view based on a promotion state configuration
(e.g. test promotion state).
4 - Open the new child view you just created.
This new view will keep the promotion state you had specified and will also keep the access rights for the testers since you had set the access rights before creating the view.
I hope this answers your question. If you have any other concerns, please let us know.
