Different Authorization for one User in BW 7.0

Hi Gurus,

Here is our situation:

The same User has to be able to see different values of one InfoObject in different Queries.

For Example: In Query1 the User has to see only one Cost Center and in Query2 - many Cost Centers.

How can this be done with the new BW 7.0 Authorization Concept?

We have tried the user to be included in two different roles , which contain the Auth. Analysis Objects, but it's not working.

We have also tried with Authorization Variables - also not helping.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Slavina,

    Both your queries are from same info Provider or Different Info providers.

    1. If it is on different Info Providers, I think you should be able to tackle by creating two different analysis authorization ( One for each info provider and the corresponding Cost center Values) and assigning both to the same user.

    2. If it is on same info Provider: You can tackle it by (the method you have already tried) using Authorization Variable and putiing a 'If' condition for the query technical name.

    With Best Regards
