    It is possible to use BOUSER in the row restriction portion of a data security profile.

    However, if you want to filter results for ALL the users by SQL based on their username, you might consider using BOUSER in a filter automatically applied to either a folder and its subfolders or to the entire universe. This provides personalized row-based security without the overhead of a data security profile.

    You best option is to create a objects in the Universe and then try to use it with the Publication. You can NOT 'BOUSER' outside of BOBJ Platform.
