I've been looking at the pivot drill down from the dashboard dials in the portal demo (Dec 20 release 1.0).

It works but it always seems to show the pivot report for the whole cube rather than the part that is specified in the URL from the dashboard. Given that the portal is supposed to only allow users to see restricted views of the data I am suddenly able to browse the complete cube - this doesn't seem right to me.

Bug or incomplete feature?

The drill URL should maintain the context of the item that was clicked on.

We have not implemented cell-level security yet. You could restrict access by putting the dimension that is filtered on in the slicer for the pivot view (so that the user cannot drill down or drill up) and then remove the Cube and MDX buttons from the view so that the user can only navigate with the dimensions that are already in play.
