Re-enable tool centric access management in Rational Change
With Rational Changes alternative to RDS, direct access to LDAP server (provided in Change 126.96.36.199), it is not longer possible to give access to Change Requests using tool specific means.
Access to Change Requests is maintained using Access Control Lists which currently rely on group memberships. Using RDS, groups were created "inside" or at least "very near to" Rational Change. With direct access to company central LDAP server (like Active Directory), the groups have to be created on these central LDAP servers.
Company central directory servers will not allow usage of tool specific LDAP groups, since that would increase the load on these servers radically and this would bring security related issues. Also, the effort to maintain company central groups would increase drastically. Also, in the near future, identity providers will be separated from access providers in many companies in the near future, so that one single service for authentication and authorization will not exist any more.
There must be a method to set up access to Change Requests inside Rational Change itself, e.g. a tool for maintaining locally created groups.
