Row Level Security vs. Owner access
Gold member
What is the difference between Row Level Security and Owner access security?

Row Level Security:
Row Level Security is implemented in PMF by limiting users (or groups of users) to viewing information based on specified dimension values.

Owner Access security:
With owner access security, the owner will only be able to view measures at or below that dimension level.

Thank you, Endre

Owner access security controls access security by owner. Each owner can have unique and independent access (G mode for Access Security).

You can turn this off and have no security at all.

Or you can set this to S which means giving a user access to a Scorecard gives them the dimensionality allowed by Scorecard (S mode for Access Security).

Also, the Row Level Security flag on each Measure controls whether it is filtered. Some Measures can be "public" and unfiltered, whereas others can be filtered.
