Can I use both Public:Shared and Public:Standard categories as a destination for copying my private reports to?
In Pega 7.1.7, when I check the "Allow rule check out" box on my 'Business' operator, I am allowed to copy my Private reports to the Public:Standard (visible to all) categories, but *not* the Public:Shared (restricted to my Access Group) categories. Reversely, if this box is unchecked then I can copy reports to the Public:Shared categories but not the Public:Standard categories. Are the two supposed to be mutually exclusive because, with the box ticked, I would like to be able to copy reports into the Standard or Shared categories?

Thanks for your response but it doesn't answer my question.
I have a Business operator (access group AnApplication:Managers). When I tick the box on their operator record saying "Allow rule check out" and log back into the Case Manager portal, I cannot Copy reports into the Shared category any more. Why is that?
Subtext is: I think it may be a bug in the data page used to populate the copy-to list when you have the checkbox ticked. I think it should include both the Standard and the Shared categories. However, I am just checking because this might be a 'feature' :-)
When the Report Browser was redesigned for 7.1 GA, the Standard & Shared categories were merged. At the time, out PO decided, that when publishing to the new "public" category, we would under the covers do the foloowing:
1 - If you are setup as a developer (operator has allow checkout) you publish to Standard categories
2 - Other wise you publish to Shared categories
There is some conversation going on within our team about expanding/changing this model, but nothing concrete yet.
Thanks for your candid response Emilio. Personally, I think there is a place for Standard and Shared categories to both be made available to senior business operators because they represent two different 'usage scopes', both of which are valid for businesses and managers thereof. However, I think associating that functionality with the "Allow rule checkout" flag is a bit nebulous.
So, I'll jot that down as a 'feature' and see whether future releases bring this functionality back with a new, and improved, model.
In PRPC 7.1.8 we are facing same issue . Operator has "Allowed rule check out" settings enabled. But user is unable to save reports to shared category as it is not listed in Public category. If we disable ""Allowed rule check out" settings in operator ,User gets an error message for having this access enabled while doing save as and submit.
