Enforce Identity driven Row level filtering on Stored Process prompt values

Is there a way to enforce an Identity driven, Row level filtering on the values displayed in the stored process prompts??

Basically I want to restrict the users to see the values to which they are associated from an external association table.

For example
The User associated with Group should be able see the Values 'GROUP','SOLO'.

The User associated with SOLO should be able to see the only 'SOLO' in the prompt.

Re: Enforce Identity driven Row level filtering on Stored Process prompt values

Hi,

You can do this by first creating an information map with an identity-driven pre-filter to provide the desired values. There is more information on how to do this in the SAS 9.2 Intelligence Platform Security Administration Guide, Chapter 8 BI Row-Level Permissions (http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bisecag/61133/HTML/default/a003073623.htm)

Once you have an information map that provides the appropriate identity-driven values you can use that as the source of the prompt. If you have a information map named IdDrivenMapOfValues with a single item named MapItemForValues containing the identity-driven/filtered values you can populate your prompt as follows:
* Prompt type: Text
* Method for populating prompt: User selects values from a dynamic list
* Data source: /path/to/your/IdDrivenMapOfValues(InformationMap)
* Data Item: MapItemForValues

I just tried this out and was able to see different prompt values when logging in as different users.

Cheers
Paul
