BW authorizations for universe connections

Hello experts,

Is it possible to use a universe without giving the user 0BI_ALL authorization? We want the same user to connect via BICS and universe and if we use 0BI_ALL for universe connections, the analysis authorizations for BICS doesn't work.

Any idea on how to have row security levels on both connections at same time?

We are using BW 7.0 and BO 4.0 SP5.

Many thanks in advance.

    Hello David,

    0BI_ALL is related to BI authorizations in BW and is related to data level based security.

    So unless you configured BI Authorization in BW for data level security you won't need it, but in case you have objects with data level security then you will either have to assign 0BI_All for users that can see everything or other objects for limiting the access - regardless of how you access the data.

      Hello Wafa,

      Thanks for you answer, but this is just about BW authorizations. I don't have problems with that, the issue is with 0BI_ALL that is requested to get data from a BO universe. I need how to do that without giving 0BI_ALL to the user.

      Regards,

      David
