I have created an entity and linked my department and location OBS to it, but I forgot to enable the OBS to be used for access rights. How can I enable them for access rights after the entity creation?

Introduction:

Once an OBS has been linked to an entity, through the CA PPM you can not do any changes to the OBS.

If the OBS was not enabled for access rights prior to the entity creation, you can not modify it afterwards.

Question:

How can I enable an OBS for access right, once this is linked to an entity?

Environment:
Any CA PPM release
Answer:

Once the OBS is linked to an entity, the OBS can not be modified.

If the OBS requires to be enabled for access rights, you can do it via XOG.

Steps to perform:

1. XOG out the OBS by using the obs_read.xml file

   You can use the following tag:

   <Filter name="name" criteria="EQUALS">Department OBS</Filter>

2. Edit the output file and locate the following tag:

    obs code="department_obs" isSecurity="false"

3. Modify the isSecurity tag to "true"

4. XOG the OBS in

You will notice that the OBS is now access rights enabled.
