Error description

  • When a restricted user is entered and the database being used is
    not case sensitive, any other form of the user's name is not
    restricted.  For instance, if the restricted user is Restricted,
    if the user enters restricted with no upppercase letter or
    RESTRICTED, they can enter the Web as a non-restricted user.

    * ClearQuest Web restricted users in a non-case sensitive      *
    * database are case sensitive.  For example, if you are a      *
    * restricted user with a username of "Restricted", and you     *
    * login with "restricted" (all lowercase) or "RESTRICTED" (all *
    * uppercase), you can enter ClearQuest Web as a non-restricted *
    * user.                                                        *

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.13 and 8.0.1.6.
    ClearQuest Web restricted users in a non-case sensitive database
    are now case in-sensitive.  In the above example, if you login
    with "restricted" (all lowercase) or "RESTRICTED" (all
    uppercase), you are now logged into ClearQust Web as a
    restricted user.
