IDT Business Security Profile Issue!!

Hi All,

We have an issue while creating Business Security profile in IDT. We use BO 4.2, SP2 and Patch 2.
We have set of folders wherein we have dimension and detail objects as well.

In Create Query tab, we grant permission to the folders which has both these dimension and detail objects, and also in display data tab for a particular user.

What we observe is, even though we give Grant permission to the folder, we cannot run the detail objects of the folder when logged in as a particular user. But we can run the dimension objects without any issue. We think, the grant for the detail object is not getting set when we give grant to the entire folder and not on individual objects.

Workaround: We have to explicitly give grant to the DETAIL objects of the folder to make the DETAIL object work for that user.

Is this a bug in IDT? Can you please let us know why this occurs?

I have the same behavior (also running 4.2 SP2), I have to declare permissions for each detail object (attribute) which is of course painful and can be error-prone when adding new objects to one universe as we may forget to set the security as it should be handled at class level.

Any update on this issue ?
