Use single privilege checks

Privileges are required to download and upload files. For better performance, you can configure Dimensions CM to check the privileges only once, and if the corresponding privilege is granted, the underlying subcommands will not check for privileges. This reduces CPU/IO load on the Dimensions CM server and improves LAN and WAN performance.

Assign the following privileges to users to perform privilege checks:

Task Description
Perform a single privilege check when downloading for a project. Assign the Download files from Project privilege, PROJECT_DOWNLOAD.
Perform a single privilege check when uploading for a project. Assign the project Upload Files into Project privilege, PROJECT_UPLOAD.
Perform a single privilege check when downloading for a baseline. Assign the project Download Files from Baseline privilege, BASELINE_DOWNLOAD.

For details about assigning privileges, see the Administration Console online help.
