We are on BI 4.1 SP1 on Win 2008 R2.
I have followed follow notes -
But no matter what I do, the personal folder always have full right for a user. I use a group in Personal Folder option in CMC to assign the top level security. Then i see that it is inheritated at the user level for that group.
There are so many notes available on the marketplace and nothing is concrete so far for me. I only tried few based on the basic Access Level theory but it is not working so far.
I tried to make even a Access Level with bunch of Deny rights and still it is allowing user to do everything.
I do not know what I am missing.
I have not yet tried the note 1857231 - How to deny the users to Add any local document to their Personal Folders (My Favorites) t..., which sounds promosing but need soem help.
Based on your requirement, 1857231 - How to deny the users to Add any local document to their Personal Folders (My Favorites) t... seems to be fit for the intended task.
