The permissions of an iRules LX workspace copy created from the "Import..." "From Workspace" are set to 775 (drwxr-xr-x) for directories and 444 (-r--r--r--) for files including the node and tcl code files. This causes the "Could not save file: <file>" error upon modification of the code.


Cannot save changes.


Attempting to modify imported workspace.


A. Create an "archive file" first and use it for importing. B. After creating a copy using "From Workspace", run chmod command to add +w to the group and others: e.g., chmod -R g+w,o+w <Workspacename>.
