Security Model example in Vault Collaboration

I have recently posted a bit about folder level security in Vault and how that can restrict people from changing data in locations they shouldn't have access to. Potentially more important is the ability to use the folder security in conjunction with Lifecycle based security.

Take a look at the two vault interfaces in figures 1 and 2 below.

This first is a look at what an engineer or designer might see when logging into Vault:




This second image shows how a shop floor user or other viewer might see using the Vault Collaboration light weight web client:


Notice that the viewer has been configured to only display data that is a "Released" or equivalent state. This ensures that they are viewing only the correct data and at the right time in the files process lifecycle.
