Using the /Applications folder
In Information Console, /Applications is a folder for BIRT iHub applications that developers publish. Actuate recommends that the administrator perform the following actions regarding the /Applications folder as a best practice:
*Create a user group named Developers for example, then assign read, execute, and write privilege on the /Applications folder to the Developers user group.
*Assign only execute privilege on the /Applications folder to users who are not developers and to the default All user group so that the /Applications folder is visible only to users belonging to the Developers user group. Users who do not belong to the Developers user group can still access an application in
/Applications using a URL such as http://localhost:8700/iportal
/Applications/<application name> after logging in to Information Console. The application developer or administrator provides this URL.
