Dear Team,

We are trying to provide a user access to CMC application with a restricted access (BO Version: XI 3.1 + SP3 + FP3.3). The operations he / she can do should be as below:

• Login to CMC application

• Able to see the user's and groups

• Able to see Folder / Universe / Connection

• Able to assign groups to the Folders / Universe / Connection

We want rest of the functionalities to either be not available or at most could be available as read only. Please can you advise if the above is possible have already searched for similar threads but not able to identify one.

Hi Shaz,

CMC is purely admin purpose console.

User need not have any rights on the same.

you can however configure rights for the user in infoview portal.

Go through administrator guide to give specific rights for the requirements that you have.

For starters, to let user see all folders in infoview.

simply login with administrator.

go to CMC>folders


top level settings

add principal ( user or user group that you want rights for )

assign View

save and close

Hi Atul,

What we are trying here is to move the User Creation process from L3 to L2 because of which we want controlled rights on the CMC application so as to avoid any unnecessary rights being reflected in L2 user account.

not really possible in XI 3.1 as you cant control the Snap- Ins in the CMC so easily.

This has been introduced with the "CMC Tab Restriction" Feature coming with BI 4.0 SP5.
