Sitescope v11.21 - Disable Public Filter

Jump to solution

Hi Experts,

  I have SiteScope v11.21 and I need to disable the creation of public filters.

  I want disable because a user without any permission (read-only) can edit and delete a public filter created by another user and by administrator. I consider this a security hole.

  Please can someone help me?

Thanks,
Jayme

Hi Jamey,

 

HotFix is supplied only for urgent product defect.

 

I totally understand your business need, however, since it is not a regression, this is how SiteScope been working for all these years, I find it hard to refer to it as a defect.

 

The appropiate way to work it out is by submitting an ER, which will be prioritized according to our product roadmap.

 

I would like to mention that althouhg your request makes perfect sense, we didn't hear about this request from other sources so far.

Hi Jayme,

Did you try to change the acces from Preferences - user preferences, selec the user and remove the access for filters?

Hi Jayme,

I think we don't have a feature to enable/disable the access to the filters. This will be an ER to add the feature.

Hi David,

 

  I can request an ER (I have a case open). But a hotfix is developed faster?

 

  The project that I'm just goes into production without this problem. Do you understand?

 

Thanks,

Jayme

Hi Jayme,

 

I do understand but I don't believe R&D will deliver a hot fix for this, this can be consider a minor problem and it doesn't look like a security problem even when you can have access to filters from other users, if that same user has not access to groups and monitors the filters will not show anything, so you might want to specify to your users which groups they can have access or not, in this way the filter problem will not affect you.

 

Regards,

 

David

Hi David,

 

  I do understand this can be consider a minor problem for most customers, but not for a use multitenancy.

 

  A read-only user (only with report permission) being able to edit and delete filters by other users and by administrator is not a very nice thing. Do you agree?

 

  I'm building a robot for login in SiteScope and delete the filters. Is the solution while I wait the ER or hotfix.

 

Thanks,

Jayme
