    Is publisher required to use REDUCTION in section access?

    Rick Worthy

      Hi,

      I'm trying to reduce the data set that users are able to view based on their respective departments.  I've tried to use Section Access to limit this by using a REDUCTION field.  However upon testing the data sets are not being reduced as expected.  I am wondering if using reduction requires the publisher license?  Currently we have both the desktop and server license but not the publisher.

       

      Also, I have loaded the section access with UPPER CASE in both the field name and the data.  However, the field and the data inside the dashboard are a combination of Upper and Lower case.  Would this be causing my issue?

       

      Example load script:

       

      Section Access;

      LOAD * INLINE [

          ACCESS, NTNAME, DEPARTMENT

          ADMIN, DOMAIN\ADMIN

          USER, DOMAIN\USER2, DEPT_TWO

          USER, DOMAIN\USER3, DEPT_THREE

          USER, DOMAIN\USER4, DEPT_FOUR

          USER, DOMAIN\USER5, DEPT_FIVE

      ];

      Section Application;

       

      Actual Dataset:

      LOAD * INLINE [

          Department

          Dept_One

          Dept_Two

          Dept_Three

          Dept_Four

          Dept_Five

      ];

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
