Error description

  • Users with the CQ privilege 'All Users/Groups Visible' unchecked
    still can see other users in the record tabs when the references
    to users are not in the display list of the query.
    Also when submitting records that have fields which are
    references to users he can see all other users via the choice
    lists of these user reference fields.
    The same applies for groups and is visible in all clients.

    ClearQuest users with the privilege "All Users/Groups
    Visible" unchecked will be shown groups they are not a
    member of in a choice list for a reference to groups field.
    Similarly, they can also see users that are part of these
    groups in a choice list for a reference to users field.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.10 and 8.0.1.3.
    
    ClearQuest users with the privilege "All Users/Groups
    Visible" unchecked can now only see the groups they are a
    member of, and can only see users that are a member of those
    same groups, in choice lists for the groups and users record
    types. The exception is the Everyone group, which does not
    provide visibility to any other users.
