Data Permissions

Data Permissions

Access to resources, such as Workbooks, Data, and APIs are granted to Access Groups. You can grant that access by setting Data Permissions.


Every time a new workbook is created the access need to be granted.

Granting Data Permission


  1. Go to “Data Permission” tab,
  2. Highlight the chosen Dimension,
  3. Highlight the chosen Hierarchy,
  4. Click on the “Edit” button on the right-hand side of Explicit Permission,
  5. Click the “Add” button in the Data Access Object Permissions pop-up,
  6. Select “Admin” in the access group selector and click OK,
  7. Make sure the “Is Default Identity” is checked.

Workbook Permissions

You can now test different identity accesses by moving your identity from Admin to Standard.


Remember to add your identity back in the Admin group before you close the designer. If you close the designer before you do this, you will not be able to get back in without deleting the entire identity access configuration I the database.
