Regular User "Views" Menu Entry Security

Prior to Release 6.2.3,  once a Regular User is given View Access to a Dataset, the Content Menu has an entry for "Views" in their Content menu. In some organizations that use Portal Pages to display a Dataset's content, it is not necessary for Regular Users (RUs) to actually access the Dataset's Viewer and may be confusing to them.  To remedy this problem for these customers, a new  "Display the Dataset Views Menu to Regular Users" Privilege is now available for assignment only to R's only.

This Privilege may be assigned on a Group Editor for inheritance by Group RU members or by an Admin only, on an individual RU's User Editor.

Information about this Privilege follows:

DESCRIPTION :Only provide this Privilege to Regular Users who require access to their Dataset Views list page.

HIERARCHY: Standalone

GROUPING: Personal Settings

CAN BE INCLUDED OR EXCLUDED FROM AN INSTANCE: Yes, by an Admin using the System Variables page.


  • Without this Privilege, the Views option in the Content Menu of Regular Users is not displayed.
  • With this Privilege, the Views option in the Content Menu of Regular Users is displayed.
  • Provide access to the selected Dataset View via an Active Name link to the Viewer
