Using several mcell.dir's

Hi all,

It would be helpfull if we could use for example a mcell.dir for Admins and a mcell.dir for Users.

We don't want that "normal" user could use all cells for reporting (as example), but Admins should have the possibility to use all cells.

I don't think that this is possible out of the box or did I miss something?

Thanks a lot and cheers

If you mean "restrict which cells a user can access in the QuickQueries module", you can actually do that :

- Edit the permissions of the user's group

- In the QuickQueries section, set the permission "Access all data sources" to NO

- List the cell(s) to which the user has access in the "Authorized data sources" permission. Cellnames must be comma-separated. You can include (or not) the  DB as a souce by providing the DB type (MySQL, ORACLE or MSSQL) in the list.
