Currently working on a solution for Sales. There a geography and sales position hierarchy.
e.g. (USA,EU,ASIA) --> EU head -->UK head -->Northern UK head -->London head -->East london--> Postal codes in east london.
so altogether 7 roles and 7 positions, all these users can see data at it's level and below.
Also the summary report/ Prompts/ subject area columns for each of these users must be at their corresponding level and just 1 level below.
e.g. EU head by default must see column EU and country UK, UK head will see report only for UK and Northern UK region and so on.
After lots of thinking i am planing to take approach of creating 6 sets of similar dashboard/ different prompts/ different global filters/ reports.
Data level access is not at all issue i am easily able to manage.
Request experts to guide is there is any other better approach to take for objects in catalog.?
many thanks in advance.
Data level security as mentioned in step 11 in the below link, or else you might use the fact table content tab's where clause box to filter out the same based on user's role/group
If helps mark
Dear Srini, Data level Security is not at all issue for me. Have already implement it and so far not a single bug in testing is caught.
It's about object level security and that too for 6 different types of user demanding different reports i.e. columns and detailed drill downs are different.
Again these 6 types of users can be read only users or power users (who can do ad hoc analysis) may be BICONSUMER and BIAUTHOR.
so need help regarding that...as we have to take decision soon.
