Understanding User Administration - Ask The Expert QNA

Hi, I'm facing a challenge. There are 2 groups, Group A and Group B. These two groups are independent at access levels and cannot access/ should not access other groups access. Ex: users present in group A must not able to access reports/access levels that exits for group B users and vice versa. Now, how can a user of group A (lets say only one user) should be able to access reports/access levels of group B? Please suggest. Regards, Mohitha.

Re: Understanding User Administration - Ask The Expert QNA

First of all, start with a high-level "deny" on the resources. Ideally, you use the SASUSERS and PUBLIC groups for this.

Then you allow the groups A and B for their respective resources.

You can now contemplate to either assign the one "A" user to group B also, or "allow" that one user access to selective resources of B.
