I've enabled a very simplistic row level security feature based on a role. The report lists a bunch of sites with their statuses. The constraint simply says that for role "A", only show sites with a status of "Active". I have created a report listing all sites (regardless of status) with the report designer and published it to the Bi Server. When I run the report with role "A", it correctly only displays the "Active" sites.

HOWEVER, when I create an ad hoc report using the business model with role "A", I can get a listing of ALL the sites, regardless of status.

Does row level security only apply to existing reports published to the server and not Ad hoc reports created on the fly?

Metadata row level security should apply to both published reports and ad hoc reports, so this may be a bug or the metadata model is configured incorrectly. If you could reproduce this with our sample metadata model, or share your model plus the waqr.xaction file, I could look into it furthur.
