F4 help restriction by authorization



I have a requirement related to F4 help in variable screen. Case is following:

- variable is on ZEMPLOYEE

- authorization is on 0PERS_AREA

0PERS_AREA is authorization relevant and is in the cube. Additionally, 0PERS_AREA is nav attribute of ZEMPLOYEE.

Requirement is that in F4 help on variable screen user can see only ZEMPLOYEE related to 0PERS_AREA for which user have authorization. ZEMPLOYEE read mode is "values only in infoprovider".

Since it did not work by default, I have changed the approach and made ZEMPLOYEE__0PERS_AREA authorization relevant, chaning analysis authorizations accordingly. It did not help I can still see all values in F4 help for variable on ZEMPLOYEE...

I wonder if authorization on attribute impact F4 value list or not i.e. if I am doing sth wrong?

Your help will be appreciated.
