Folder security

    Hello Everybody,
    We are trying to find out if anybody has developed a way to determine user group permissions and capabilities on  folders and subfolders. I have created an APAR and requested IBM look into creating user tables that can be populated from corresponding Content database tables to enable users to run queries against them since they do not recommend accessing the CM tables directly.

    We have a lot of user groups and report folders and sub folders. It would be great to run a report against any folder  to provide that information.

    I am also interested in this type of capability.  The ability to view security on objects both at an individual and hierarchical view will come in very handy for security management.

    Not sure if this is the same requirement. We have data in our framework that users can drag and drop from the package to make reports. I've noticed that you can right click on objects in final business/presentation layer in FM and give role based security groups to the data. I haven't tried this for myself yet. 

    Would like to know how you tackle it.
