3097258 - Linked Dimensions do not filter data when using Data Access Control in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


When filtering data using Data Access Control, linked models do not filter data using the Data Access control.


Model #1: Has a dimension "abcd" with Data Access Control enabled.

Model #2: Has no Data Access Control

Story A: Uses Model #1 and Model #2 linked on dimension "abcd".  In the story, any chart that uses Model #1 and dimension "abcd" will be correctly filtered as per the Data Access Control.  However and story that uses model #2 and dimension "abcd" will not be filtered at all.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create model #1. Activate Data Access Control on one of the dimensions and limit the dimension to only a few rows of data
  2. Create model #2. Do not activate Data Access Control
  3. Create a story where you link model #1 and model #2 on the dimension that you restricted.
  4. Display the data from model #2 - note that all the data for the limited dimension is displayed.
