SAC data access control with exception on aggregate levels


I have to implement the following: one can access detailed information only on a the restricted data but can compare with global values (for instance : the manager of one region can see details only for his region but have aggregate information about national level).

  • Analytics model implemented with imported data
  • Restict data access on one dimension (made using data access control)
  • Give access to aggregate value on chart / table where the restricted dimension is not used

I've tried this workflow :

  • Creation of a data model with data access control on one dimension
  • Creation of the quite identical data model, except the dimension restricted in the first model
  • Creation of a story with both data models linked on the common dimensions
  • Use of a input control over time dimension (selection by member) of the first model
  • Creation of a "Difference from" mesure to calculate the growth rate (current period vs previous year) on the second model
  • Use of the caclulated measure in Numeric Point chart

Results :

  • No issue during creation ==> the measure is well displayed
  • After Save and of the model : error message = Add time dimension to the chart, etc...

Any idea ?
