Security in Filters

Hi All,

I have a filter with the dimension client. I am trying to implement security in the filter so that data is visible only to the specific client.

How can we do it?

Thanks

in advance

Re: Security in Filters

Look up Section Access

As indicated, this only works from the Server (Desktop has no security capabilities)

Re: Security in Filters

You can also do it with mashups.

Hey David,

I already have section access in the app. now I need to restrict the the company name which is showing in the filter and display only to the specific client.

HeyDion,

Re: Security in Filters

section access if set correctly will do this....what do have?

You will need a table that has the user and which company(s) they have access to.

Re: Security in Filters

I have an app ,duplicated in multiple schema. section access is implemented in such a way that same app works in all schema without making any change in the script because of which app has been complex already.

Is it possible to do from QMC?

Re: Security in Filters

I think you mean that section access is set based on the Stream the app is published to?

Be interested to see how that is done.

Regardless, the existing Section Access would have to be modified to include user (or stream?)/company
