Need to hide defects from previous stage from public view
Question ID: 108063

We have multiple phases to many projects, so opposed to creating a new project for each phase and copying test cases over and over again, we are managing projects now through the folders.
For each phase we create, we set SQ_SEQ_VALUE to start with 2000 or 3000 so that we can keep the defects separate for each phase. I have been trying to figure out how to hide the previous versions from all project users view per the PM’s request.
I have been unsuccessful so far in achieving that and need some help with it.

Go Dawgs,

This can be achieved using the Data Hiding feature of User Group properties. So, please do the following steps:

1. From the ALM Project customization Window, in the left pane, click Groups and Permissions. This will open the Groups and Permissions page.
2. From the user group list, choose the group you want to hide Data from.
3. Click the Data Hiding tab.
4. Select the entity for which you want to hide data. In your case, click Defect. This will show you the current filter set for Defects for the User Groups you have chosen.
5. Click the Set Filter button. This will open the Filter defect dialog box.
6. Set the Defect ID to > 2000 or > 3000 or whatever you are setting your SQ_SEQ_VALUE to.
7. Click OK to close the Filter dialog box. The filters you set are displayed.
8. Click Save to save your changes to the Groups and Permissions page.

Now, whenever a user in the User Group whose Permissions you just changed should only see defects greater than the filter you set on the Defect ID.

I hope this helps.
