2.8 Enabling Users to Access Entries via the Workspace Tree When They Do Not Have Access to the Parent Folder or Workspace

You can enable users who have access to an entry, but do not have access to the parent workspace or folder, to navigate to the entry by using the Workspace tree, as described in Navigating the Workspace Tree in the Novell Vibe 3.2 User Guide.

Users who do not have this right must either perform a search to locate the entry, or they must have the entry shared with them as described in Sharing Entries in the Novell Vibe 3.2 User Guide.

For information about how users can grant other Vibe users access to an entry even when users don’t have access to the parent workspace or folder, see Exposing a Vibe Entry to a Wider Audience Than the Folder Access Controls Allow in the Novell Vibe 3.2 Advanced User Guide.
