Navigational Access (Master Data Services)

Navigational access applies to model object security, which is assigned on the Models tab.

Navigational access is the access you get to levels higher than where you’ve assigned security.

In this example, permissions are assigned to an entity, and so navigational access is granted at the model level.

Model object permission inheritance

Entities

When you assign permission to an entity, its leaf members, or its consolidated members, navigational access means you can read or update the name and code for all members. You can also read the model name.

Attributes

When you assign permission to an attribute, navigational access means you can read or update the name and code for all members in the entity. You can also read the model name.

Attribute Groups

When you assign permission to an attribute group, navigational access means you can read or update the name and code for all members in the attribute group.

Derived Hierarchies

When you assign permission to a derived hierarchy, you can read or update the name and code for all members in the hierarchy. You can also read the model name.

Collections

When you assign permissions to collections, you can read or update the name, code, description and owner ID.

You can also read the name and code for all entities in the model.

You can also read the model name.

Explicit Hierarchies

When you assign permission to an explicit hierarchy, you can read the name and code for all leaf and consolidated members in the hierarchy. Explicit hierarchy access does not ever give you the ability to update the name and code of members.
