Hi,

I have requirement to lock branch while doing code freeze and making release but the challenge is that i dont have access on perforce server so i can use p4 protect..

Hows it feasible to achieve without having perforce server accesss.

If you are not an admin, then you should take a look at the “group owner” feature introduced in 2007.3. This will let a non-super user to be able to add & remove people from a group. Later you have to combine with this protections table,at this point you may need to work one time with perforce admin i.e. get site admin to set up the protections table, and restrict rights to a group named “Release 1.0 Authorised”, and make you the group owner. You can then add and remove users (or subgroups) from that group to control access.

Straight answer is you should get the admin access else you should just pass this to perforce admins.:)
