Member Access Profile For Each Entity?

Hi experts we have 4 groups of users with distinct functions e.g. input, consolidators, viewers and administrator. However, the Input and consolidators are limited by entity(ies). For example input Joe can only see company 1 and input Bill company 2 etc. and consolidator Sue can see companies 1-5.

Does this mean that I need to setup 3 separate member access profiles and restrict by entity for Joe Bill and Sue?

Any other way to setup?

    Hi Eyal,

    for a real security you would have to add a Access Profile per Entity yes.

    No other chance.

    If you just need to show the relevant entities per user in a inputschedule you could store Flags for each user and entiy in a separate application (with a dimension where the UserID is equivalent to a member of that dimension) and expand with a filter on that flag.

    But this is just to show the right entities. If the user generates a report by himself he could still see and change values of other entities and he still has all entities in Member Selector.

    Hi Eyal,

    the m.a.p. are the basic building blocks, so you should define one for each entity, assigning one or more m.a.p. to the team.

    The same thing for the viewers you should create m.a.p. in read only and assign them, if they can view all then you can simplify build one with entity all in read only.

    Kind regards
