Thread: Role Based Security And Content Based Security implementation through User Console

  1. #1

    Default Role Based Security And Content Based Security implementation through User Console

    Dear All,

    I am new to Pentaho Dashboarding and Reporting. I have created a Dashboard through User Console which uses -
    1. a dropdown filter showing all company names
    2. dials
    3. analyzer reports

    My requirement is -
    1. Restrict dashboard access for approx 150 users with their individual logins (Role Based security)
    2. Each user should be able to see data pertaining to their Company (from dropdown filter) (Content Based security)

    Please note that I dont have knowledge on java scripting or coding. This dashboard is a simple dashboard created on MySQL database.
    I read few articles in Infocenter but could not find correct solution as per my requirement. PLease let me know how can we achieve this.

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thanks Nilesh.
    I have few questions.
    I am using Pentaho Enterprise Edition version 4.8.1.GA.51480. And User COnsole for Dashboard creation.
    There are around 150-300 users who will access this dashboard.

    Is your post on CAS and LDAP applicable for my requirement as directory structure would be different for Enterprise and Community Edition?
    Pls suggest how can I achieve LDAP authentication in my scenario.
    Your help is appreciated.
