Configuring Projects as Private

Developers who create a draft project and do not want the results visible to other users can define the project as private, which renders the project scans invisible to other users with the following exceptions:

  • The scan's owner (the user)

  • Users with Server Manager privileges

  • Users whose location in the hierarchy is higher than that of the user. These users can only read or delete private projects defined in lower hierarchy levels, and they cannot edit or modify these projects.

Notice

Projects can only be set to private, if you create a new project on an IDE platform. The example below uses an Eclipse environment.

To define a project as private:

1. Right-click the project's name.

2. Click CxViewer > Scan. The Upload Sources dialog appears and you can add the new scan to an existing project or create a new CxProject as outlined in the table below

3. In the Upload Source dialog box, define the scan or project as outlined in the table below.

Checked by default. To make the project public, clear the checkbox. If checked, all scans in this project are private. The Scan is Private checkbox is unavailable.

Scan is Private

Checked by default. To make the scan public, clear the checkbox. If checked, the relevant scan is private, but the project itself remains public.

Repeating Scans of a Project

First scan: If you run the first scan of a project, it is scanned without binding the project.

Second scan: When you start a second scan of a project, the Project Scan window appears, asking, if you want to bind the scan to the corresponding project.

  • To bind and scan the source, click <Yes>. This process takes considerably longer than just a scan.

  • To scan without binding to the corresponding project, click <No>. The Upload Sources dialog appears again and you have to choose another project from the list or create a new one as explained above.
