Can we have column level security i.e desired column list using HANA models?

Hi All,

Request your help for the below Scenario:

User X logs in, should see only column1,column2 and column3

User Y logs in, should see only Column4,column5 and column2

I can do this using EXECUTE IMMEDIATE. But am looking for any other ways to do this?

Reporting tool: SAP BO Analysis Office

    Hi Krishna

    Currently there is no feature for that available in SAP HANA and I am not aware that this is coming any time soon.

    You might work around that by building calcviews without aggregation to do the actual work. Those won't be exposed to BI clients.

    On top of these calc views you build the user facing calc views that would only contain the columns you want each user group to see.

    While this is not super secure in any way, it still might be good enough depending on the use case.

    Hello All,

    Do have a look on this document: SAP HANA: Workaround for implementing Column level security with SAP AO on HANA

    Request your comments on this.
