    1. Open one of the models.
    2. Open one of the dimensions and enable data access control.
    3. Grant Read and Write permission to one of the dimension members.
    4. Save the Model.
    5. Log out with the Admin user.

    3. Save the Story.
    4. Log out with the End-user.

  3. Log in with the Admin user again.
    1. Go to the same Model and Dimension.
    2. Grant Read and Write access to another dimension member to the End-user.
    3. Save the Model
    4. Log out with the admin user.

  4. Log in with the End-user.
    1. Go to the previously Created Story.
    2. Notice that the changes are not being applied. The new dimension member is not visible.


  • Once the public version has been modified, it will behave as a private version.


  • The behavior is By Design
  • The end-user should "Revert changes to the public version" OR "Publish and Update Existing Version" to see the newly granted dimension members (i.e. USA).
    1. Revert changes to the public version
      • The changes will not be applied
      • The TYPE will be Public again.


    2. Publish and Update Existing Version
      • The changes will be applied
      • The TYPE will be Public again.
