Enabling Data Access Control on Models in SAP Analytics Cloud

Very often, I am facing customers who want to enable Data Access Control directly in SAP Analytics Cloud at the model level. Especially for planning models. One user, or one role for a specific country, or account, and another role, or user for another. This can be easily done in SAP Analytics Cloud and in this short video, I will show you how to set this up.

To sum up, you simply need to go to the model you want to enable with Data Access control and then select the dimension you want to add the data access control to. Then click on Preferences as shown below

For another user, only able to see EMEA Region :
