Assigning access for combinations of dimension members

Security Dilemma Example

Two Dimensions: Site and Department

Site Members Department Members

Site A Dept 1

Site B Dept 2

Site C Dept 3

Question: Is it possible in BPC version 4.2 SP4 to set up the following access for an user?

User A needs access to Site A and all departs only for Site A

User A needs access to Site B and only Dept 2 for Site B

User A needs access to Site C and only Dept 1 and 3 for Site C

My understanding is that if a user is given access to all departments, then he would be able to pull those depts for ALL sites he has access to. How can I assign access for combinations of members from different dimensions?

    Hi,

    Just to understand what you specified,

    Site Members Department Members

    Site A Dept 1

    Site B Dept 2

    Site C Dept 3

    These 3 Dept's are there in all the 3 Sites. Is my understanding correct?

    If that is the case, better would be to maintain 9 IDs for Dept dimension

    Dept1_SiteA, Dept2_SiteA, Dept3_SiteA,

    Dept1_SiteB............................................

    ...........................................Dept3_SiteC

    That means you have 9 Dept members. Now it becomes very simple to assign access.

    I dont think there is any way to assign security to combination of dimensions.

    Hope this helps.

      Hi,

      I am sorry, but I dont think there is any provision to attain what you requested for.

      You might have to change the structure of the dimensions. Because the member access profiles can be given on the dimensions and that will be applicable to every possible combination.

      Hope this helps.
