I'm asked to setup a system using primavera via web, but the key point of the system is that the projects information must be publicly avalaible for anyone as part of Transparency law.
My question is, what's the best way to allow public access to the information?
I'm currently using PCM 13
thanks much for your valuable help,
By it's nature PCM13 is a secure, user-based interface. Oracle user acconts are named-user accounts by definition, so using a generic user account with view rights would be a conflict to your licensing.
To provide information to the general public from PCM data, I would suggest three primary routes:
1. Custom web-services screens that access PCM data through web services and pushes the information to a separate public website. This would require web-service licensing to push the data, but end-viewers would not be accessing PCM, so no license for users. This would require custom programming as well as some web-service licensing, but could then be more or less automatic once set up.
2. Output PCM reports to PDF and store these in an accessible location (web site/public sharepoint, whatever) where public can access. This would require some user intervention to run the reports and post, but would allow public then immediate access to those files.
3. Public data request is routed to an internal staff, who reviews the request, obtains the information out of PCM and delivers this to the public requesting it.
