Did you know that you can create new groups and delete groups directly in IBM Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW)? This is done within the dimension editor via the same screen that you use to edit dimensions and attributes.
Step 1: Select the dimension to be edited. This is done by either right clicking on a dimension and selecting the option to “Edit Dimension” or by dragging the dimension onto a sheet.
Step 2: Switch to member security mode. This is done by clicking the Member Security Mode icon:
Step 3: You can now modify groups by selecting the icon to either create or delete a group:
If you choose the option to create a group then you will be prompted for the group name.
Once created, you can then set security by right clicking on the applicable areas:
- Right click on the group name to define security for all elements within the group
- Right click on a specific element to define security only for that element
This approach will save you time by allowing you to perform all aspects of dimension maintenance within a single area.
