Securing a Dimension


What does securing a dimension during assignment of dimensions to an application mean?

And if i just secure it without putting a R/W to it, it doesn't seem to do much purpose. Please correct me if i am wrong.

Secure and Read/Write access are two different conecepts:

Lets suppose you have dimension 1 where you have member A like father to B and C in your dimension.

Secure means that I'm able to provide access for an user to dimesnion 1 only to member C. He is not able to see any other member except C.

Now Read and write means the user can see only C but I can restricted his write access. He will not be able to send data or change data for C. He will be able only to see data for C if I will say for user he is able only to have read only.

Secure is reffering to access to members of that dimensions.

R/W is refering to possibility of changing data.
