One question I have is that, after giving the VIEW access to SAM in shared services, do I need to go to planning application and give READ access to each data form, dimensions, etc ?Yes. Form and dimension security are separate then the application security.
So you mean to say that after I provision the user in Shared Services, I need to go to planning application and then do these steps right?Yes. You need to follow these steps.
a. Give read access to each data form
b. Give access to each dimension (well the dimension access would be only in case the dimensions have security added to them right?)
And well, I gave the user read access to data forms and when I tried to view the dataform by logging to the username, this is the message it showed:That means there is still one or more dimension(s) that you have yet to assign security to this user. Have you checked all your dimensions and made sure this user is assigned security to them?
"you are trying to open the dataform but cannot because all of the required dimensions are not present, possible causes may be that you may not have access to at least one member of the required dimension or the member selected resulted in no members present"
