Authorization Check in BPS - Multiplanning Area & Multiprovider

Dear experts,

we have a very serious problem in assigning the correct authorizations.

The scenario is like this:

We created a Multiplanning area in BPS. Attached to this Multiplanning area are two Planning Areas.

In Basis Planning Area 1 we attached one transactional cube. This cube is used to store the generated data.

In Planning Area 2 we attached a Mutiprovider. This area (and therefore also the Multiprovider) are only needed to read reference data.

Technically everything works fine, the problem occurs only in the authorization area.

The Multiprovider that contains the reference data is checked with an authorization object created in RSSM. In Reporting (queries) the authorization check is only performed on the multiprovider itself. The authorization objects of the underlying Basis cubes are ignored. In BPS the situation seems to be different. As we understand the log of RSSM BPS checks not only the authorization object of the multiprovider but also of the Basis cubes.

As we can not simply change the authorization objects of the Basis cubes we are looking for an option to have in BPS the same logic as in reporting:

Check only the authorizations assigned to the Multiprovider and do not check the authorization objects assigned to the underlying Basis Cubes.

Any idea on this issue???

Thanks in advance!
