Intersecting Authorizations

Hello Gurus,

Im having a trouble with authorizations in BI-IP . Im trying to do authorizations for cost planning. But values for combination of cost centers and cost elements are intersecting. And when i use both of them, i get message that user is not authorized. For example ;

USER01 will have two authorizations : Authorization1 and Authorization2

Authorization 1:

Cost Center : 1100 , Cost element : 77000001 - 77000099 (for only his department)

Authorization 2 :

Cost Center : 1100 - 1400 , Cost element : 76000001 - 760000099 (other department's costelemnts)

USER01 is going to enter his values to the input ready query. And when he opens the query, he chooses the variable value of costcenter. If he chooses 1100, he must see the costelemnts of 77000001-7700009 and 76000001 - 760000099 .

But if he chooses 1200, he must see the only costelements from 7600000 to 76000099 .

In rsecadmin, i created two authorization objects. And i added 0TCT* infoobjects and the other authorization related objects. I created two roles (PFCG) and assigned those authorizations to those roles. And i assigned those roles to the USER01.

I added the authorization related variables for costelement, and costcenter to the query.

When i give the user roles individually,the authorization works ok. And the query returns right results.

Problem is; when i give the two role in same time, authorization fails.

I made all analysis from rsecadmin. Authorization fails in only costcenter and costelement combinations . Other authorization objects works ok.(infocube, rrmx etc. )

Is there anybody who faced a similar situation?

Thanks in advance,
