Post subject: BI Platform Security for Mere Mortals

Those that have been around this forum for a while will probably recognize the title of this message. There is a longstanding thread here. Well, I will be "reprising" the material at this years ASUG SABOC (SAP Analytics and BusinessObjects Conference), which will include a 4.1 version of the Excel-based security matrix icon_biggrin.gif . I've posted both the tool and presentation material here, based on a Windows installation of 4.1 SP06 with the Explorer and Design Tool add-ons installed.

The matrix document basically contains two things:
    A list of all possible rights, and where they are included in the default access levels.
    A list of all of the default settings in a "clean" installation.
