2850749 - Code List Restrictions not Applied to Reports

  3. Create a restriction, for example on the object Ticket and the code Ticket Type.
  4. Select a few ticket types and assign this restriction to a specific business role.
  5. Log on to the system with a user who has this business role.
  6. Go to the Analysis work center and the view Reports.
  7. Open a report about tickets.
  8. Check the data displayed - it shows more than the allowed ticket types.
