A security profile is a group of
security settings that apply to a
universe published in the repository
Similar features are available in
the Universe Design Tool for
traditional universes (UNV), known
as access restrictions or restriction
sets
WhaL ls a SecurlLy Þroñle?
28
Data Security Profiles have security
settings defined on objects in the
data foundation and on data
connections
Business Security Profiles have
security settings defined on objects
in the business layer
Type of restriction Description
Connection Override the default universe connection
with an alternate connection
Query controls Limit the size of the result set and query
execution time
SQL generation controls Control how SQL is generated by user
query
Row access Row-level security – force restrictions
into the WHERE clause of inferred SQL
Alternative table access Replace a table referenced in the universe
with another table in the database
Object access Column-level security
