Pinned topic Permissions in Public folders ibm Cognos

‏2012-04-18T11:14:06Z |
Hello One and All,
In Myfolders I want to create a folder named 'X'. If I have logged in as 'A' and create a folder named 'X', I can see folder 'X'. If I login as 'B', I cannot see the folder 'X'. This is right. At the same time if I login as 'A' and create a folder named 'X' in Public folders, user 'A' can see the folder. If I login as 'B' also, I am able to see the folder named 'X'. How to restrict user 'B' to see folder 'X' in public folders as the folder is created by 'A'.
Please help me.

Thanx in advance.

    Once you are logged in as "A", go to the folder's permissions and Deny READ permission for user "B".

    This way "B" will not be able to see the folder.

    Thanx for the reply. I have denied all the permissions for 'B'. But still 'B' is able to see the folder.

    If the folder is inside other folder, make sure it is not inheriting permission from upper folder.

    Check 'Override the access permissions acquired from the parent entry' in the permissions

    It is in public folders only. I have checked 'Override the access permissions acquired from the parent entry' for that particular folder. Is it required to change any permissions for any groups or roles in cognos namespace.

    Make sure "B" does not have admin permissions.

    @Richard,

    Can you please tell me how to deny admin permissions. If I remove 'B' from System Administrators in the namespace, B is not even able to see any of the public folders.

    • remove "Everone" from SystemAdministrator Role if not already done
    • assign only require users to SystemAdministrator role
    • assign "normal" users to Consumers role for example so they have access to the Public Folders.

    A folder will not be visible to a user if he has no permission to it, this means none of RAD,WRITE,EXECUTE,TRAVERSE,SETPOLICY.

    Reading up in the Security & Administration guide will explain the concepts better than a short forum post though ;o)

    Hope this helps
