You create a workspace on the
server machine. Other users
to the workspace from
client machines. The workspace repository resides on a database server, and can be accessed by any user with database privileges
to the repository.
Note: Do not modify the name of the workspace after you create it. Doing so will cause unpredictable results.
Before creating a workspace, you must configure an ODBC data source name (DSN) for the database that holds the workspace repository,
as described in the installation guide for your product. You will need the following DSN configuration information to create
- The data source name.
- The database schema name your DBA created for the repository.
- The database user name and password that give access to the schema.
- If required by your DBMS, the name of the tablespace your DBA created for the repository. If the DBA also created a tablespace
for database indexes, you will need the name of that tablespace as well.
The folder in which you plan to create workspaces must be shared with team members. It’s usually more convenient to share
the folder before you create workspaces, but you can do it afterward if necessary, then refresh the workspace path.
It is the responsibility of the workspace creator to designate users for security policies. Perform this task as soon as you
have finished creating the workspace, then periodically edit the list of users as required.
