    ClearQuest users are able to update schema repository
    connection information via the Maintenance Tool even without
    "superuser" privileges.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.6.
    
    Only ClearQuest users with SuperUser privileges are now able
    to update the schema repository connection information in
    the Maintenance Tool.  If a regular ClearQuest user tries,
    they will get a pop-up message saying "CRMMD1240E Permission
    denied.  This operation can only be performed by a user with
    SuperUser privileges" and it fails.
