Scorecard-Specific Data Access Security

How to:

For each scorecard in PMF, you can set scorecard-specific data access security by changing the default dimensional levels of measure data to which the scorecard has access. Granting users access to view a particular scorecard automatically allows them to view its measures dimensionally, as appropriate for that scorecard. You can either define access to levels of dimensionality by owner or set scorecard-specific data access. Using one method overrides the other. For more information about owner-based data access, see Setting Measure Access for Users (Owners).

Before you can set scorecard-specific data access security, you must change Access Security in the Security panel on the Settings menu to S (Scorecard) from the default of O (Off). Setting scorecard-specific data access provides each owner, who has read access or higher for a scorecard, access to all of the measure values at the dimensional levels that the scorecard is set to access.

Note: If a particular measure has row-level security turned off, it will not be filtered for scorecard-specific data access. For more information, see Excluding a Measure Series From Access Security.

Scorecard-specific data access security overrides global access security, which determines access to dimensional levels by owner instead of scorecard.

Note: Global (owner-based) data access security is set by changing Access Security to G (Global) in the Security panel on the Settings menu.
