Navigation attributes authorization

Hi,all

In NW2004s new auth concept allows to create auth for nav attributes as for chars. But! We have situation when one char is used as nav attribute in several chars. I.e. Char A, used in B__A, C__A and D__A. Is that nesesary to create auth for every nav attr use, or maybe there is a setting not to use nav attrs separately.

I'm afraid, it can be difficult to administer such situations.

    Hi Emerald,

    You create an authorisation for a navigational attributes as you do for every other characterisitcs, hence you would create it only once.

    For further help please refer to the online help on

      In nutshell,whatever navigational attributes(infoobjects) which would be used for drill-down or navigation in query by users need restrictions ,you would have to go to particular infoobject and turn on its relevant nav. attributes as authorization relevant

      Hope it Helps

    Hi Emerald,

    maybe an approach to resolve some irritations.

    Let consider your scenario, one char is used as nav attribute in several chars. i.e. Char A, used in B__A, C__A and D__A.

    If you want to protect the usage of the characteristic A as navigational attribute in the characteristics B, C or D, you have to set the flag 'Authorisation relevant' in the attribute section of the respective characteristics B, C or D (which means up to 3 flags and corresponding 3 authorisations).

    If you want to use the characteristic A in its on right in an InfoProvider, you have to set the flag 'Authorisation relevant' in the InfoObject maintenance of characteristic A.

    If I have stated something different in my previous replies, please neglect them.

    Cheers
