When entering a value on top level of a hierarchy, the value is distributed to all members below which is basically ok. But the value is spreaded also to members which are out of Data Access Control.
SAP Analytics Cloud Version 2020.14.23
Reproducing the Issue
Enter a value on top level of a hierarchy, the value is distributed to all members even those which are out of Data Access Control.
The behavior described is intended by the design of planning in SAC
Users plan on copies of the data in their own private versions. Within these private versions, for the sake of planning and simulation, they are allowed to manipulate data on any members they like. Only when the data is saved back to the public versions (by publishing explicitly created private versions or by saving the state of ad-hoc edited public versions) is the data access control enforced. Users can then decide to publish only the facts for members they are allowed to write to, or cancel and still adjust the data. There is also the option to work with cell locks, in order to limit the disaggregation behavior of data entry.
