Apply security in IBM Cognos Framework Manager
This section discusses security at a high level. We do not implement security in our model directly but discuss generic steps about how to apply security.
In IBM Cognos Framework Manager, security is a way of restricting access to metadata and data. There are three different types of security in IBM Cognos Framework Manager:
Each type of security relies on users, groups, and roles to define access. Before you add security in IBM Cognos Framework Manager, ensure that security was set up correctly in IBM Cognos BI.
Object level security
You can apply metadata security directly to objects in a model. When you add object-based security, you apply a specific user, group, or role directly to the object. In doing so, you choose to make the object visible to the select users or groups.
If you do not set object-based security, all objects in the model are visible to everyone who has access to the package. The object inherits the security that was defined for its parent object. When you explicitly allow or deny access to an object, you override the inherited setting. When you apply security to a parent object, all of the child objects inherit the security settings. After you set security for one object, you must set it for all objects. You can set security for all objects by setting security on the root namespace.
You might want an object to be visible only to one selected group or role. For example, in your project you might have a Salary query subject. You might want this query subject visible to a Manager role but not visible to an Employee role.
If a user is a member of multiple groups or roles and if one group is allowed access to an object and another is denied access, the user will not have access to the secured object. In cases of conflicting access, the denied access group or role membership will have priority.
There are two basic approaches to implementing object level security in your model:
To add object level security:
To remove object level security from the model:
Row level security
You can restrict the data that is returned by query subjects in a project by using security filters. A security filter controls the data that is shown to users when they author their reports.
For example, sales managers at the Great Outdoors company want to ensure that Camping Equipment sales representatives see only orders that relate to the Camping Equipment product line. To accomplish this, create and add members to a Sales Managers and Camping Equipment Reps groups. Then apply a security filter to the Products query subject to restrict their access to camping equipment data
To specify row level security:
Package level security
Package access refers to the ability to use the package in one of the IBM Cognos BI studios or to run a report that uses the package from IBM Cognos Connection. Users without these permissions are denied access, although they can still view saved report outputs if they have access to the reports. You can also grant administrative access to packages for those users who might be required to republish a package.
You define package level security during the publish process the first time the package is published.
To modify access to your package after it has been published:
