Opened: Dec 05, 2017
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

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.

Impact

Cannot save changes.

Conditions

Attempting to modify imported workspace.

Workaround

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>.

Fix Information

None
