We have implemented P6 and P6 Analytics for a customer and are using Oracle Secure Global Desktop without SSO technology. Due to the size of the implementation, and because various groups are using the system, we needed a common naming convention. The best method we found to use due to the nature of the implementation is to use the user's National Number; Passport Number or Social Security. Even though we encrypt the data at a database level, users can still see other user's user number and personal name in the system. I did a study to see where this number becomes available to another P6 user and came up with the following:
1) When sharing views; Layouts; Filters; Portfolios Views; Dashboards and Scenarios.
2) P6 Team Member Functionality - Status Reviewer; Activity Owner or Email.
3) P6 Standard Fields like: Added By; Modified By; Last Modified By; Checked Out By and Author.
In P6 Analytics I managed to suppress user IDs from other users.
When I look inside the database (SQL Developer - Admuser - USERS table) I see that the passwords are encrypted. Is there a way that I can suppress the username or encrypt i on the front end? A user only needs to use their Passport / Social Security number to login to the system, from then on it must be hidden.
If you connect to the database, Tables, USERS, look at the Password Column. It's obviously encrypted. I'm trying to understand the process involved that encrypts the password, and instead of hiding the User Name, merely show the encrypted value. This could possibly an option if it is at all possible.
I hear what you are saying, but due to the scale, size and nature of this Project, a naming convention at a '*Country Level'* is actually appropriate. You may be more accustomed to single organisational level instances.
I did a quick study and found that only when sharing views, Layouts, or using Team Member, or fields like Last Modified By, Author, etc. display the sit of users from the user table. Rest of the options use the resource tree.
Again, for this size of project, Passport / SS numbers for our country works best.
