Securing some views as "Public"

Mike Duffy shared this idea 7 years ago

I am deploying Yellowfin to our clients with some default views. How can I secure these views such that even a senior user ( not system admin, I reserve that role for myself) ....

a) cannot edit or delete these default views, but

b) CAN create, edit or delete their own views and give others access to them.

Does the "Public Content Writer & Collaborator - Advanced" role achieve this ?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for sending in the question. Unfortunately what you are after isn't quite possible. You can't restrict a specific view while simultaneously allowing the same user to be able to create/delete their own.

What you are after here could be a neat enhancement, so I'm going to convert this question into an idea for our product team to review.

Anyway, I apologize for the bit of bad news here. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding this.

Kind Regards,
