Pinned topic How to restrict user access to modify data through Express Advisor

‏2012-09-13T10:28:12Z |
We are on Cognos Express 9.4

The budget users are configured to enter budgets through contributor.

The same users want to use advisor to analyse the data in the budget cubes. I want to restrict the same users to only view the data and not modify through advisor.

What security setting is available to restrict users to only view data in express advisor.

Thanks
Shajil

    Hi Shajil,

    If you are using the Advisor product then you can right click on a dimension in the Offspread (title) or Inspread (rows / columns) area and Select Formatting then tick the Force Read Only option. This will prevent data entry.

    If you are using the Insight component via the web then I think this is read only by default.

    Hope this helps.
