Is it possible to give User Authorization to reports via Info Object catalog / Info Object?

Is it possible to give BI-User Authorization to BI-reports via Info Object catalog?

Current situation:

We create some new reports with 2 new Multiprovider for 2 different User groups(A/B).

The Info-objects used come from different Info areas and were used for other reports beside the new once too.

We have created different Info - object - catalogs (with and without authorization relevant Info Objects).

Some auth. rel. Info Objects were used for both User Groups(A/B).

Now my questions:

1. How do I need to create the Authorization?

Currently we work with Menu- and Auth Roles with the corresponding Analysis Authorization.

2. Is there an easier way of creating/maintaining the Authorizations if we work with Info-Object-Catalogs?

Do we still need Menu-, Auth Role and Analysis Authorization?

3. Are we able to restrict User in such a way that in one report

- the User will have access for all company codes and restrictions on Profit center

- but in another report has restriction to one company code and no restriction to Profit center but on business area?

4. If we need to stay with Menu- and Auth Role with Analysis Authorization:

What is the advantage of giving Authorization by Info Object catalog?

The maintanance of Menu- and Auth Role will be low but the maintanance of the User profile's will be big.

Any hint would be welcome........

Regards,

Gaby

    1. How do I need to create the Authorization?

    Currently we work with Menu- and Auth Roles with the corresponding Analysis Authorization.

    Follow this wonderful doc http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-11451

    2. Is there an easier way of creating/maintaining the Authorizations if we work with Info-Object-Catalogs?

    Do we still need Menu-, Auth Role and Analysis Authorization?

    You can't create authorizations on catalogues. You still need Menu, Roles, Authorization Profiles and Analysis Auth..

    3. Are we able to restrict User in such a way that in one report

    - the User will have access for all company codes and restrictions on Profit center

    - but in another report has restriction to one company code and no restriction to Profit center but on business area?

    Yes it is possible. You have to create separate roles and give access as per your requirement. You have to assign same report with different authorizations to two roles.

    4. If we need to stay with Menu- and Auth Role with Analysis Authorization:

    What is the advantage of giving Authorization by Info Object catalog?

    The maintanance of Menu- and Auth Role will be low but the maintanance of the User profile's will be big.

    As I said, it is not possible to give authorization by catalogue. It is only possible by individual objects like Infoobject, Inforpoviders etc..
