BI - Infoarea restrictons


I am restricting BI Authorization components (S_RS_COMP, COMP1, ICUBE, ODSO) on 0SD* which is a parent Infoarea and my assumption is that all the sub infoareas underneath 0SD* are accessabile. I am not able access ZCDS_C005 infoprovider which is under a one of the sub infoarea, but if I add ZCDS* in S_RS_COMP, ICUBE etc I am able to I missing some thing here or this is how BW security works?

Hi Kumar,

In your S_RS_COMP and S_RS_ICUBE please specify the exact info area under which the particular cube falls.

Why to give higher level of info area.

And also it is not like Heigerchy where we specify the higher node and it automatically gives access to bellow level.

Here when you are specifying 0SD* it is the pattern you are passing so it will give access to all the info areas which start with 0SD But seems to that your info area is starting with Z So it is not working.

Just check these.

So in RSA1 try searching for the infocube using find.

Then if you see the under which info area exactly this cube belongs then give that.
