Automating User Creation

Automating User Creation

Automating User Creation

I have a need to automatically create a MicroStrategy User, create a filter based on his userID (which is an attribute stored in a lookup table on the warehouse), and then apply that filter as his security filter so when he logs in, he only sees his data.  We are working on version 7.1.3.  I know there is a way to create the user and apply a security filter in Command Manager, but there isn't a way to create a filter(until 7.2).
  Is there a way to do all of this in one of the SDKs?

RE: Automating User Creation

yes, you can use the COM based API to do all of the above.  You'd need to install the SDK and then check out the following 2 manuals:

- SDK for Intelligence Server and Web Developer Guide: Common Functions
- SDK for Intelligence Server Developer Guide: Extended Functions

It's a little easier with Command Manager in 7.2 if you can upgrade.....
