2.1i Design Manager - XPROJ directory is created with user permissions only

Description

KEYWORDS: permission, xproj, write, read, execute, access, user, shared, umask

URGENCY: standard

GENERAL DECSRIPTION:

When the design manager creates an XPROJ directory it sets
the permissions on this folder to be read/write and execute for
the user ONLY. If umask is set so that other users in the group
have access to the folders. The tools ignore this setting.

Solution

Workaround:

You can use chmod to change the permissions on the xproj
directory.

Example: chmod -R 777 xproj/

This gives user, group and others all read write and
execute permissions.
