|Title||Perforce users need a TeamTrack licence to use TeamTrack features|
|Assigned user||Richard Brooksby|
|Description||TeamTrack issues cannot be assigned to a Perforce user unless the Perforce user is licensed as a Teamtrack user. This is correct according to the requirements, but it would be nice if it weren't the case.|
|Analysis||TeamShare insist on this. They are concerned that otherwise people would be able to use the P4DTI to work around their lack of TeamTrack licences. See our agreement [GDR 2000-08-18].|
This is Perforce's job 5152.

Advice for all releases.
Symptom. In the TeamTrack integration, if you try to assign a job in Perforce to a Perforce user who doesn't have a TeamTrack licence (by editing the Owner field), then the replicator refuses to replicate it; it resets the Owner field and sends e-mail.
Cause. To get the benefit of TeamTrack features, TeamShare insist that you buy TeamTrack licences. We agreed with TeamShare that the P4DTI would respect this policy; see [GDR 2000-08-18, 3.3.1].
Solution. Buy new TeamTrack licences for all users who need to use TeamTrack features (whether directly or via the P4DTI).
