Sharing tab

You can choose to share your file in several ways:

Note: 'Artifact' refers to a file stored on a TIC server.

  • Do not share this artifact with any other user - Only you will be able to see and manage the file on TIC server.
  • Share this artifact with any other user - All users will be able to see the file on TIC server. Additionally, when you check Allow any user to manage this artifact, all users will be able to manage the file.
  • Share this artifact with selected user or group - You can share the file with a specific user/group by moving them to the Shared with field. You can also allow users/groups to manage the file by checking the appropriate checkbox.

Links tab

Links represent logical relationships between artifacts. You can create one between your published file and one or more existing artifacts. In Link Description, describe the nature of the relationship.

To open the Notifications window, click the Notifications button either in Intelligence Central window or on Intelligence Central toolbar.
