New Concept of Auth in BI7- Alternative Hierarchies for the same InfoObject

Dear sirs, we are using the New Concept of Authorizations in BI7 and we cannot see how to model authorizations when you have several hierarchies for the same InfoObject (0COSTCENTER).

For example:

- you can fill authorizations with nodes of a main hierarchy. Let´s say

you are granted to Cost Centers A,B,C under node NODE-A of hierarchy HIER-A.

- you have an alternative hierarchy, HIER-B in which you have organize the same Cost Centers as for HIER-A in different nodes. For example, youhave a node NODE-B which has Cost Centers A,D, NODE-C which contains Cost Centers C,E,F and NODE-D which contains Cost Centers B,G.

- A user is only granted to Cost Centers A,B,C, so in the authorization we can assign auth to HIER-A/NODE-A, but.. what about alternative hierarchy HIER-B?? We cannot fill hierarchy - nodes auth values, so that he can work with HIER-B but accesing only information of CosCenters A,B,C.

- As a result, the user can only use hierarchy HIER-A.

Any ideas?

Thaks in advance and regards,
