Hi all,
We are using PVCS 8.0.
In our pvcs we have 5 projects (ex: pvcs1, pvcs2, pvcs3, pvcs4, pvcs5) totally.

Example: how we access them in UNIX box is to access pvcs1: /lv55/data/pvcs/pvcs1
similarly for pvcs2: /lv55/data/pvcs/pvcs2, etc...

We have URL to access the pvcs as end user or admin. (ex: http://servername1:9080/pvcs1?jsp=login)

I got a recent user access request to be given to pvcs1, pvcs2 and pvcs3 as developer.
So I logged in as admin user and gave access pvcs1 folder to the user.
Ex: User seeking developer access is "pvcs1developer"

To my shock or surprise, "pvcs1developer" gained same developer access to all the 5 projects (pvcs1 to pvcs5).
Can someone explain why or how?

Sorry, I'm not so good at pvcs. so if terminology is wrong please excuse me.

    Hi Raj,

    The most likely explanation is that admin who setup these 5 project database deployed a shared Access Control Database (ACDB), so there is a single set of users and privileges that grants access to all of them.

    You can check this by going to Admin -> Configure Project on each of them and look for the Access Control Database path (in the Security section). Project Databases sharing the same path will have the same user access.

    If this is what you find, and you are sure you do not want this anymore, use Duplicate and existing access control database to make a copy of the existing ACDB under a new name, then remove the user from the other ACDB file(s).

    If you cannot change the ACDB path, go to Admin -> Make secure, check if the box in from of Access database is selected and report back. (Do not change this without knowing its impact.)

    Kind regards,

    - Richard.
