component security in SAP Design studio 1.6

Hello, In Design studio 1.6, do we have the availability of having component level security?

say, I have 6 different charts(components) in the dashboard and the data source is from Universes. And if there are 5 different user profiles each have their own datasets set at Univ level. And, if a user is intend to see only 2 components then the dashboard should show those two and rest 3 should not display.

Thanks!

    Hi Vishal,

    You can also consider the Identity Controller which is part of the APOS Data Gateway extension for Design Studio. This allows you to access a list of the BusinessObjects security Groups assigned to the logged in user and thereby control what elements are visible based on assigned security group.

    Regards,

    Mustafa.

    Interesting - I hadn't thought of that. I don't think it does this today; on the BW side it relies on BW authorizations. There is a similar idea under review at Idea Place - see

    - I encourage you to go vote on that, and add your feedback.
