Hide a Project Root
A project often contains a number of models to support different areas of development or administration. Any one user - other than perhaps the Project Manager or Administrator - is unlikely to be working across the whole structure, and would not need to see the entire project. Therefore, Enterprise Architect provides a facility to hide project Root Nodes and their contents on the basis of security group locks. The facility is not available on locks set on individual user IDs.
When you set a Group Lock on a Root Node, you can also select a checkbox to hide the Package in the Browser window from users who are not members of the locking group or Administrators. If you change the type of lock, or remove the lock altogether, the Package becomes visible to all users.
This feature hides the Root Package and its contents from initial view in the Browser window. It does not prevent the contents of the Package from being exposed in Model Searches. If you want to completely hide a Package from groups of users, consider Pro Cloud Server Visibility Levels.
