Restricting Access to Folders



  • (1) I have created a Folder named - ‘Test Folder1’ and ‘Test Folder2’
  • (2) Created group ‘Test Users’ and added user – ‘TestUser1’ & ‘TestUser2’ to the group
  • (3) Created a Custom Access Level ‘Test Access level’ and Added right’s
    1. Log on to BI Launch pad and view this object in CMC.
    2. View Objects
    3. View Objects that the user own

Once I have followed above three steps, at the Personal folder level for the ‘Test Folder1’ , Right Click & under the User Security – I have added the group ‘Test Users’ and assigned the ‘Test Access Level’

Also went to ‘Manage>Top Level Security’ and added the ‘Test users’ group & ‘Test Access level’

Question: When I log into the BI launch Pad as ‘TestUser1’ - I do see both ‘Test Folder1’ and ‘Test Folder2’. How can I restrict the access just to view the ‘TestFolder 1’??
