Hi,

I have created a salary cube for our organization in SSAS. There are two dimensions that are desirable to be access controlled. I have managed to cofigure controll for DIvisions, so that one Division see only it's salary. Person dimension is however not directly associated with organization dimension. This is because the same person can be employed at several divisions. So what I need is that the Division sees only its employes, not everybody in organization. For now. If they take away organization dimension, then they can pick any employee.

Does anybody have any suggestion?

Looking forward to hearing.

Regards,
Kostas Vilimas

When we've needed to do this type of restriction in the past, we've done it by nesting values - you have a dimension that's "Division-Person" where you can expand a division, and then expand all the people within that division. However, we've never done this when a person can belong to multiple divisions, as this would cause some incorrect aggregation, since some people's salaries would be reported in multiple divisions and then rolled into the total multiple times.

How do you want people's salary reported when they're employed by multiple divisions - should their full salary be shown, or should a person's salary be divided equally among all the divisions that employ them?

Well, this was a good idea with division-person. We don't need to allocate salaries as this is done explicitelly. If I were salaried by to divisions, my salary parts would be registered at both with their respective parts

Then your totals should still be okay, since the person's salary is broken up by division, so it's never double-counted. I've never seen a way to "dynamically restrict" views to certain dimensions like this, other that nesting them and then restricting the top level.
