Verifying access restriction on a visual

To ensure that we specified the access restrictions correctly, let us view the same visual as an Administrative user, and as a user who is linked to each of the three filter associations declared in the previous section.

  1. Log in as a user with Administrative privileges, and navigate to the application. Notice that the entire dataset appears in the visual; for example, it shows 4,621 Four-Door Cars.
  2. Log in as a user associated with the dataset through the CA SalesReps filter association. Such a user, in this case CArep1, can only see records available for the state of California. For example, when she navigates to the application, she can only see 1,593 records for Four-Door Cars.
  3. If you log in as AZrep1, a user associated with the dataset through the Mountain SalesReps filter association, you could only see records available for the states of Arizona and Nevada. For example, when AZrep1 navigates to the application, she can see only 1,325 records for Four-Door Cars.
  4. Finally, if you log in as WArep1, a user associated with the dataset through the North West SalesReps filter association, you would see records available for the states of Oregon and Washington, but none of the others. For example, when WArep1 navigates to the application, she sees 1,703 records for Four-Door Cars.
