Re: Hi all, What is the purpose of protecting project in datastage.?2013-01-17T02:05:07ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.This is usually done in a production environment and it ensures developers and the support team follow correct SDLC procedures and avoid the trap of fixing defects directly in production. By making the jobs read only it means that defect fixes have to be made back in a development environment and migrated to production via standard deployment. If you do not lock down your production environment then jobs can be altered and then those changes lost the next time the job is promoted from dev/test.
It also prevents someone from modifying a job to retrieve sensitive data that they are not supposed to have access to.
Even though the environment is readonly there is still the flexibility to change job parameters and alter the job schedule.
