Regarding Analysis Authorizations in role.

Dear all,

I am working in Analysis authorization. we need to restrict the user from whole dimension.(for ex: access should be restrcited to whole Material Dimension)

Senario 2: how to restrict the access to one of the object in whole dimension (for ex: we need to restrict the access to material object in material dimension, but user can have authorization for other objects like division)

How to do this. any pointers would be appreciated.

thanks in advance.

    Good morning,

    I would start with your scenario 2 query.

    Build your analysis authorisation including the standard 3 info objects (Activity, Validity Date, Info Areas) and any other info object required. Specifically, for your material object to be checked (including any of the others), it has to be made Authorization Relevant in the info object itself (usually done by your BW consultant).

    Once this has been done, you'll be able to add the info object to your authorisation.

    So the authorisation here, would be restricted to the various info sources and your material object could be specified here.

    In order for this to work, your BW consultant would also need to add an Authorisation variable to the report - although I'm sure your consultant would know about this requirement.

    For your first scenario you would have to build the authorisation in exactly the same was as in your 2nd scenario, however the material object info object would be wild-carded.

    Hope this answers your questions?
