“Create Permission Request File” is checked by default.
Create Permission Request File – If this option is selected, the textbox to enter filenames to create a credential becomes enabled; also, the “Copy from file” option becomes disabled.
For a signed application to access the organization’s folder in persistent storage, just creating a default PRF is sufficient. The default PRF template provides permission for this access. But to access a folder in the organization folder that is created for some other application, a “persistent file credential” is required. To create this credential in the PRF, enter the filenames that the current application needs to access, separated by comma.
If a folder created for an application in another disc/project needs to be accessed by an application in the current project, then both the discs/projects shall have the same organization id and the same application root certificate. This is because the grantor will be the same as the grantee for credentials created by Blu-print.
Copy from File – To copy an existing PRF, click on this option and browse to select the PRF.
The following the template is used to create Permission Request Files.
<file value=»true» /> is enough for an application to be able to access the folder created for itself in the organization folder and also the organization folder itself. To access folders in the organization folder created for other applications, it requires a <persistentfilecredential>. This is created at the time of signing the JARs if the appropriate values are entered in the PRF tab for that application.

The “Icon” tab is used to identify the application’s icon.
