Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

User publishes data from Controller to TM1, via the FAP functionality. Superuser looks inside TM1 and notices some new groups have been created.
What is the meaning/purpose of these groups?

Symptom

The groups that are created are "SuperGroupOther", "U1SuperGroup", "UCSuperGroup", "UFSuperGroup", "UVALL" and "UVSuperGroup".


Resolving the problem

The following super groups can be created:

  • Super Group Other - All CCR users need to be included in this group to be able to view anything in TM1 (all users need to belong to at least one group in TM1 to be able to see anything)
  • UCSuperGroup - All CCR users that are entitled to see all companies will be included in this group
  • UFSuperGroup - All CCR users that are entitled to see all accounts/forms will be included in this group
  • UVSuperGroup - All CCR users who have the right to review all closing versions (manual journal types) will be included in this group
  • U1SuperGroup - All CCR users who have the right to review all elements in the extended dimension 1 will be included in this group
  • U2SuperGroup - All CCR users who have the right to review all elements in the extended dimension 2 will be included in this group
  • U3SuperGroup - All CCR users who have the right to review all elements in the extended dimension 3 will be included in this group
  • U4SuperGroup - All CCR users who have the right to review all elements in the extended dimension of 4 will be included in this group

In addition, there is the naming convention:
- CCR Company security groups in TM1 with the prefix UC.
- CCR Account security groups in TM1 with the prefix UF.
- CCR Closing Version safety groups in TM1 with prefix UV.
- CCR Extended dimension 1 security groups in TM1 with prefix U1.
- CCR Extended dimension two security groups in TM1 with prefix U2.
- CCR Extended dimension 3 security groups in TM1 with prefix U3.
- CCR Extended dimension 4 security groups in TM1 with prefix U4.
