Question:
After upgrading PPM, we find that the Resource - Edit Financial access right is readded to the resource managers. Our company does not allow them to see Financial Properties subpage, so we would like to disable the Resource - Edit Financial access right, how to proceed?
Environment:
Starting PPM 15.2, the file is no longer added with the PPM installation, and has to be downloaded and installed per this article
Answer:
Remove the Resource - Edit Financial access right.
 
If your company policy does not allow resource managers access to the Financial Properties subpage for the resources they manage, you can remove that capability.
 
Run a post installation script to perform the following actions:
  1. Remove the Resource - Edit Financial access right from all current resource managers.
  2. Clear the setting for the financial option that automatically grants the access right to new resource managers.
 
Note: To maintain existing behavior, this right is granted during the upgrade. This right replaces the automatic right that was removed as part of the Financially Enabled Roles feature.
 
 
 
Follow these steps:
0. Copy the attached file to the PPM server, in <clarity_home>/bin directory
1. At the command line on the same server, navigate to the <clarity_home>/bin directory.
 
The directory contains the dbpatch script. We recommend you to always run the command from here.
 
2.Run the following command:
 
Windows:
dbpatch -install -file RevokeResEditFinRightFromResourceMgrs.xml  - apply
 UNIX:
./dbpatch -install -file RevokeResEditFinRightFromResourceMgrs.xml  - apply
3. You may now remove the file from the /bin directory
 
Note: You may use another directory to copy the file, just correct the commands to have the full path to run it.
