Hi ,We are using BW 3.5 . We are having a requirement to restrict reports on profit center hierarchies . I wanted to know if there is an easier way to build the security other than having to create one role per nodes . Also we need restriction based on profit centers for plannning related things .. Please suggest me the best approach to do this .

Speak to your BW team about the possibility of using variables for this.

In summary, you can automatically populate selected authorisation fields with data from another source e.g. lookup table populated with data extracted from R/3.

These are questions you should be asking your BW team.

To get you going, take a look at user exit RSR00001

Most important thing from a security point of view is to work out if the effort to do this is less than creating a standard security based solution
