The project security feature was added to Rational Change in Version 5.3 an alternative to traditional database security, where privileges are statically assigned at the database level. When you enable project security, rather than assigning users static privileges that apply to all change requests (CRs) and tasks within a particular database, users are assigned dynamic privileges within the context of a set of related CRs. This makes user management for Rational Change 5.3 easy. Part 1 of this two-part article explains the feature and the related terms. The purpose of both parts is to make you comfortable with the terms used in the feature before you begin using it and to help you understand and implement the feature easily.
