    1. Add a chart to the Story and select the above created model for datasource.
    2. Notice that user A can only see  data for the granted member from dimension A.
  3.  Login with the admin user again.
    1. Enable Data Access Control to dimension B and grant permissions to user B for one of the dimension members.
  4. Login with user A and open the story created in Step 2.
