Info provider based Security


We build the multi provider with cube A and B, and planing to implement object based security on Infoprovider, the purpose have a one report common for 2 business and enforce security while accessing the data.

1 Created 2 Authorization Object AO1 and AO2 based on info provider A and B.

2.Addd these authorization objects to Roles R1 and R2 respectively.

3 Assigned roles R1 and R2 to 2 test user U1 and U2.

The User U1 still able to access data from the cube B and the same way Use U2 able to see data from cube B.

Any suggestion how can I enforce this design at security level..

Thanks for your inputs..

    Hi Raman,

    Are you using BW7.0? In BI7 BW is doing more rigorous authorization/security checks.

    If you are using BW3.X versions then you need to implement the concept:

    "Unless the user has access to a resource...DO NOT ALLOW access"..

    In RSSM (3.5) you can limit access by InofrArea OR InfoCube.

    You need to explicitly limit access only to the relevant InfoCubes.

    Additional Useful info:

    Good luck, BB
