Re: User Authorities and Dashboards


Hi Alex,

Thanks for the response!

I have 150 investors and none of them should be able to see the reports of the other investors.
Does this mean that I have to create 150 user groups with one investor each?

Dear Georgi,

The solution is Sharing and User Groups

Implement the same sharing on each report/chart/gis map as you did on the dashboard.
That is Set Public to None and then add the Investor User Group (which is has access) and set sharing to View

Hello all,

I have a big problem setting up the correct authorities so that users see what I need them to.
In brief, I am reporting on financial data. I have a few investors for whom I have prepared personal dashboards with pivots on how much return they have earned. I DO NOT want investors to be able to see each other’s data.

This is what I have done:

1)      User Authorities:

-          See dashboards

-          See browser cache

-          See pivot table module
IMPORTANT: If I remove the “See pivot table module” the users are not able to see the saved pivot tables on their dashboard! So I need this authority.

2)      Dashboards

-          Created personal dashboard for each investor

-          Shared the dashboard only with the respective investor

Every investor is able to see only their dashboard. Here comes the BIG PROBLEM: When an investor clicks “Explore” pivot table from the dashboard it takes him to the Pivot table app. From there, they can go to Favorites and open a saved report for any of the other investors and see data.

Two questions here:

1)      Is there a way for user to see pivots on a dashboard without necessarily having access to the Pivot reporting module?

2)      If not, is there a way to restrict user of opening reports saved as favorites in the Pivot reporting module?

Your comments are highly appreciated!
