Admin access - Read Only

Post by Emixam » Tue Oct 13, 2020 4:04 pm


Is there an easy way to setup a group that will see everything ( Cube, dimensions, TI, ...) but will not be able to edit anything (READ only) ?

Thanks !
Sorry for my English :)

I haven't tried it, but I think you can use your regular (non-admin) groups in the security.
Then add the client(s) and mark them as Read_only in the }ClientProperties cube (for instance, enter a value of 1 there).
I don't think there's an easy other way.

Or, maybe, add the user to the SecurityAdmin group ;-) They have too much rights regarding security but regarding other objects they should be fine :lol:

I think you can make the user part of the ADMIN group and use the read-only flag. That should work. But is a bit risky because some day IBM might realize that this does not make sense.
There is no OLAP database besides TM1!
