How to base authorization on worksets

Hi All,

I see different postings about this topic, but I'm not sure where it stands.

We have different users that access PCA reports, CCA reports and a combination of both.

We have a PCA workset and a CCA workset that has the BW iView reports assigned to them.

We would like to have one role where the worksets are "dynamic". So for the users that have authorization for both PCA and CCA reports do not need to have 2 different tabs labeled "PCA Reports" and "CCA Reports". It would be one role that has both worksets assigned.

Then for users that only have PCA authorization, they do not see the CCA workset in this one role.

Is this possible?

Thanks.

    For this u need to have two roles and u have to merge ur roles.

    Create a role and name it as PCA Role and assign PCA reports to it and go to property editor of the role and in MERGE ID filed give a name and save it

    Create a another role and assign CCA reports to it and go to property editor of the workset and in MERGE ID filed give a name(give the same name which u have given in for first workset) and save it.

    Now assign roles to users as u like.

    if u assign Role1 to user1 he can see only content 1.

    if u assign both roles he can see both content1 and content2.

    If u assign both roles also user can see PCA and CCA reports under one role .

    Regards

    Krishna.

    I don't think this is possible, except you write your own navigation application.

    Hi MC,

    You can use MergeID to get your work done . Select the workset and go to properties and select Can Be merged as true .. then go to mergeID and give a ID (user defined) If you want you can even provide merge priority . then go to second workset and follow the same procedure .. Merge ID should be same for both the worksets .

    Go through the following link.
