Understanding Master Users

The user who creates a workspace on a Enterprise Analyzer server machine is referred to as its owner. Initially, only the owner has master user privileges for the workspace.

The master user can delete the workspace, upgrade the workspace configuration, register and verify source files, modify source, autoresolve decisions, perform restricted Code Search searches, create, assign, and delete tags, and so forth. The master user can also designate new master users for the workspace.

Ordinary users connect to the workspace from Enterprise Analyzer client machines. These users can perform any task not restricted to the master user: analyze programs, mine business rules, extract components, and so forth.

If you do not have master user privileges for a workspace, you will not see menu choices for privileged methods. The same team member can be a master user for one workspace and an ordinary user for another.
