In this post, I will discuss Security and the role is has within HFM applications. I will show how to change user access for different Security Classes, and also how to create a new user in an application. Both of these topics are very significant for assigning accessibility to your new HFM application.
The Security Class within HFM is very important when setting up your new application. They allow you to specify who is allowed to see different things within the application. You can restrict which accounts someone has access to, which entities they can see, different scenarios they can look at, which Inter Company Partners they can see, and the access to different custom dimensions. After the Security Class has been associated with a certain dimension, you can assign the user privileges to those classes. This is done in Shared Services.
