I need to hide some optional variables (not all of them) on variables screen in web template.
Hiding the whole selection screen is not an option, since users have to populate other variables and some variables are mandatory.
Web template is based on a query that can be run in BEx Analyzer by superusers - and there they need all variables. I want to use the same query both in BEx Analyzer for superusers and on the Portal for regular users. For portal version though I need to hide some of the variables on the selection screen. Is it possible at all?
I would like to avoid creating two separate queries - one for Analyzer and one for Portal.
if the variables are optional and mandatory both avaialble
then there is no chance that u can hide them
the only option is to create a save as QUERY and remove those variable.
it is not possible to just hide the variable screen...
if u hv used they will be displayed....
if u dont want it dont use it...
and if really using another query is not advisable as u said
the only thing i can say is that... try to interact with ur security person
ask him u need to create several authorization objects for several variables
if that is possible
let him create those
assign those specific authorization object to specific user id
use it for specific variables u need
tat way super users with specaial authorization can acess the same query and can see specific variables
regular users withouts authorization of variables can see rest of variables.
