GIT tab not visible on Posit Workbench/Server Pro - GUI


While utilizing git in Workbench, you may encounter some inconveniences hampering collaboration on projects through the git GUI, where only the owner of the project can utilize the git tab, but others have no visibility. 



We have seen this in environments where projects are shared using shared file systems that are set up as NFSv3. While rserver uses Linux ACLs to control access to shared projects, NFSv3 does not fully support ACLs as needed. 

Solution 1: If local disks are big enough and available within sessions, moving the GIT repository from a shared file system to a local filesystem will make the Git Tab visible to the owner and other users/analysts. 

Solution 2: if using a local filesystem isn't appropriate, we recommend upgrading to NFSv4.
