I've tried setting global vars (&&) in the ".prf" files on EDASERVE in the workspace configuration files. The setting of the app path works, but the global var does not make it to either InfoAssist or if I execute something from app studio in the app path. I also wanted to create some HOLD files for data level security, but those are not in the EDATEMP directory when I try to run something.
There is a profile.fex in the baseapp folder on EDASERVE, however that does not get executed automatically. I have not had to do any configuration and profile work in quite some time, and of course everything has changed since then.
My current environment is Webfocus 8103. We are using SQL Server (not sure of the version) for the data tables, and for the WebFOCUS repository.
My goal is to set up DBA security using &&USERID and setting a read restriction on a data field in the master: USER=&&USERID, ACCESS=R, RESTRICT=VALUE_WHERE, NAME=SYSTEM, VALUE=columnname EQ(hold_file_name);, $ where columnname is the field I want to restrict values, and hold_file_name contains a list of values the user has access to.
I wanted to put in a profile that is executed for everyone, the app path setting, &&USERID=&IBIMR_user, user pass setting, and a hold file that contain a list of values the user has access to. The app path set appears to work, however the hold files and global var setting do not work.
Anyone that additional advice on this please let me know.
