Functionality bit 5
- Checkin on /main limited to VOB Owner (or another user)

This portion of the license file contains the functionality bit to:

Restrict who can perform checkins on the /main branch . The most popular restriction of this sort is that only the VOB owner can perform this checkin. This is usually better than selecting a single user as a global schema in that there might be several VOBs in your organization and it can usually be assumed that the most trusted id in the VOB is the ID that owns the VOB.

If an attempt is made to checkin on the main branch by anyone but the current VOB owner then a dialog similar to the one below is displayed:



To change the personality of this bit to limit /main branch checks to a user ID other than the current VOB owner , just make sure to set the special purpose cleartrigger_alias ABS_bit_05_main_override in the clearbits file. The alias can be set to any valid userid and that will be the only ID that can perform checkins on the /main branch in the ClearTrigger region.


Valid values for this bit are defined below:
