Answer / cognos123

Firstly your application should have security set up in
place. eg: u must have LDAP server set up.

Having said that once u have users and roles have been
defined in security server u will create a macro in FM
with account.defaultuserName() session parameter.

Above defined macro will work as explicit filter when user
logs into cognos portal and based on given permissions
he/she will be able to see only his/her pertaining data
when ever then run report.
