Authorization check acts 'weird' when using pre-query


We have the following situation in our BI7.0 system with new Analysis Authorization concept:

1. User is authorized for Plant 0010 only

2. When running a query + entering value 0010 for Plant-variable everything works fine

3. When entering value 0020 the query ends with message 'No applicable data found' where we would expect message 'Not authorized'

Reason is that the query has a variable of type 'Replacement path' which in fact is a pre-query that runs first to fetch all relevant Delivery numbers.

This pre-query fails in the background (visible in RSECADMIN trace), returns no Delivery numbers so the main query ends with 'No applicable data found'.

On the one hand this is logical but is there any way to push the authorization check result (i.e. 'No authorization') through to the main query results?

Many thx!
