Customization of reporting templates and access rights

Thursday, June 1, 2017



We have several teams working  on different project in Spira portal. Each team would like to have their customized templates. They of course want to develop and test their template in prior of publishing them.


However, the only way to let them do this, I found, is giving the them each the Administration rights over the whole system. That is something risky, I definitely like to avoid, because the dedicated person often hardly represents the project and sometimes not even this but it is an ordinary tester. 


Is there any solution to let an individual user to edit and test the report template without giving him the full Administrator rights on "production database" ?

Hi Josef

The problem is that the report builder gives you unrestricted access to the entire database via. SQL, so we have to limit the use of it to people who already have systemwide access to the data (system admins). We may in the future add other system-wide roles, but that is not currently the case.
