Financial dimension security

Is there a way to apply security to financial dimension values?  The goal being to show only certain values in a particular dimension based on a role or some other type of security.  Xds or code at the moment look like the only routes, i tried xds and read all I could find, it's still kind of dicey for dimensions.  Has anyone Done this before?

Hi Daniel Budimir,

Yes it could be done using XDS. There is even a whitepaper document available. www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx

Hi Daniel,

An alternative is the unit security feature in the Management reporter. This function does, however, only affect your reporting. If the people receiving the reports also have full access rights in dynamics the unit security won't help and you need to apply XDS in addition.

Best regards
