Does row level security works if null value found in cube model ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created one sales cube which has country wise sales table and country table and security group table like below. 


        country     sales_amount    security_group_id
         India             50000          S1
          UK               50000          S2
         NULL              50000          S1


        country  security_group_id
         India       S1
          UK         S2


      User_name  security_group_id
        ABC               S1
        XYZ               S2

  • Hi Amira,

    Thanks for your question.

    The NULL value of the county column in table "SALES" doesn't affect the execution of row level security. Row level security does restrict data based on which windows user logins in. And the related condition columns are "User_name" and "security_group_id".

    For more details about Row level security, please refer:
