Post subject: Function for BO User in Webi XI 3.1

Hi,

I am applying Universe restrictions on an Object to restrict him to view certain data.

Now, I am also doing some computations on Webi report level. I am on BO XI 3.1. Is there any function (report level) which can give the information of BO User? (The Name of User viewing the report)

I can then use the function to restrict him to see certain details which are getting computed on reporting end.

Thanks !!

Thanks Rajat.

Is there any way I can see the Group Name (CMC Group Name) to which that User belongs in Webi?

I have three columns in report and I don't want some users to view one particular column. I tried making restriction on Universe but I only see Table level restrictions, I cant seem to write a statament which restricts users tosee a particular column/data of column in report.

I just have three columns - A, B & C

I want when Users of a particular group (say G1) view the report, they only see A and B column in report.

Can any one help here?
