Protected Directories adds Access Control List (ACL) to Subversion directories. ACL allows you to restrict directories so that only certain team members have write permission.
To protect a directory:
- Go to the Setting sub-tab on the SVN repository tab, then click the Protected Directories link on the left side. You must be an "Owner" on the project to view the Settings sub-tab
- Under Directory Path, enter the relative path to the directory, for example "trunk"
- Under Grant write permission to, type the usernames for the team members who will be allowed write permission. Other team members will be able to view the protected directory content.
- Finally click Protect Directory. Team members who are allowed access to the protected directory will see the directory marked with a green lock icon. Other team members will see it marked with a red lock icon.
To remove directory protection from a directory or to edit it, use the red delete icon and edit icon to the right of the protected directory entry.
