Hide Rules From Users?

Post by cycleman83 » Wed Jul 29, 2015 8:49 pm

Does anyone know a way to hide rules files from users? I don't want users to be able to view cube rules when they are in perspectives. I'm using v9.5.2... Any suggestions?! TIA

Raise an RFE or chances are you can vote for an existing one. You are not alone on wanting this.
Please place all requests for help in a public thread. I will not answer PMs requesting assistance.

Thanks for the quick response... I'll check to see if there is an existing RFE, if not I'll create my own. Thanks again!

This is definitely vote-worthy, however have you considered the rule trace functionality? Thinking about this might help you frame your enhancement request. What I mean is that whilst it may be desirable to remove the ability to view rules for all non-Admin users, it may still be useful for any user to be able to right-click the cell and get the rule trace. There are plenty of power users for which it would be a backward step to remove their ability to do this.
