Include a Business Element filter's rights when a BusinessView is promote to another BOE environment

I have a Business Element that includes a filter.

To have the filter applied, its rights need to be set (right click the filter, then select Edit Rights...). Here, I've assigned the filter to be applied to Everyone.

When I promote the Crystal Report and its dependencies (the Business View) to our UAT server, the BE's filter's rights are NOT included; I need to manually adjust them in the BusinessView manager.

Is there a way to force the promotion to include the rights? I've included all of the BV's various components as far as I can tell.

What version of BI Platform are you using ?
This should work if you include security in your promotion job.

SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.1 Support Pack 4

You are correct. I didn't notice this feature before now:

Which elements do I need to include?


that is very old. Please try newer version.
I recall several BV related improvements/fixes in Promotion management since that level.


Unfortunately, "this is the car that I'm driving", so to speak. No options for this version?


Well, in that case - play with Security options. I think for BV its Object security. It needs to be included.
