Permissions and access management is a common issue for OpenText Content Suite users. We hear often that Content Suite customers are not able to readily visualize and comprehend their permissions structures and that bulk changes to permissions is an administrative headache.

OpenText has now appreciated that this is a very real issue and with the next Content Suite extension pack (EP6) they will be introducing additional permissions management capabilities into the core product.
