If you are working on a Package that is not under Version Control, you can select certain options on the 'Controlled Package' context menu.

(Further options are available from the 'Model Exchange' panel of the Publish ribbon, and for a Package that is directly under Version Control you use the 'Package Version Control' menu.)

Set Visibility Level

This menu item is only available in a model that has been set up for Visibility Levels, and when it is being accessed via a Pro Cloud server connection. It is primarily used by System Administrators to manage user access to Packages within the model.

You use this option to set a Visibility Level on a Package, which applies to the Package and its child structures. The Visibility Level has a matching user access level set in User Security. A user with a given access level can only see, access and update Packages with the equivalent Visibility Level or lower.

Select from the list of values, which start at 0 (no restriction on access) and can go up to 5 (for Packages requiring high security of access). You will only be able to set Visibility Levels at or below the access level to which you have been assigned.

To remove a Visibility Level from a Package (and all its children), simply set the Visibility Level back to zero. Any user can then view and update the Package (within the limitations of any user security controls on their access to functions).
