I have this issue too, and I solve this with a workaroud: Create a Group in SS or AD and add the users or groups you need, then create a MAXL script and save it on the server, every time u refresh security filters for the planning app run this MAXL script after.
create or replace filter 'Demo'.'Basic'.'fff'
meta_read on '"New_York"';
grant filter 'Demo'.'Basic'.'fff' to group $groupname;
You know, I just figured it out. You need to use Grid POV when you set up the report. You set your dimensions to "Member from a List" and select the members you want. Make sure Grid POV is checked though! And that you select a member in the Grid's POV in FR Studio. Then render the report, you'll only be able to select the members from the lists you've created.
What I didn't know was that this renders a grey bar just above the grid itself where you select the members you want to see. As far as I know, there's no way to set a report-wide option to limit the POV of all reports simultaneously. Which, quite frankly, is unacceptable.
If you go to FR Studio > Task > Set Up User POV, you will be able to filter the report POV but only for the user who is editing the report
=> It's better than the small grey bar above the report so you don't have to select POV twice but only one time. Now we should find a way to propagate this parameter to the other users. But I don't know how to do it and where this information is stored...
