You can enable security for dimensions, including user-defined Custom dimensions. If you do not set security on a dimension, all users can access the dimension members.

By default, the Account, Entity, Scenario, and View dimensions are enabled for access permissions. Optionally, you can assign access to Year and Periods.

You can assign security to dimension members for user and groups. You can assign security at a member level or parent level.

    • To enable security, click Apply Security.


      If you do not select this option, there is no security on the dimension, and users can access its members without restriction.

    • To disable security, clear Apply Security.

  4. Click Save.
