I am trying to restrict access to data based upon database security

I am in the process of evaluating Flexmonster for use in our business.
We are using a Postgres database (in this case version 9.5) and want to restrict access to certain parts of data using row level security.
In the HTML client startup file, I have added the credentials data (see below) but when I monitor the access to the database, it is using the credentials from the server process, not the client.
I believe that the credentials data is being ignored when the client starts up, even if I mis-spell the elements the model still loads up and runs without complaining
<script type=”text/javascript”>
var config = {
licenseKey: “Z526-0K1NY2-2L2Q-3H09-0H1N-1W0C-141V-162H-1V13-0T”,
dataSourceType: “mondrian”,
proxyUrl: “http://localhost:50006/FlexmonsterProxy”,
catalog: “caerus_reporting.xml”,
cube: “Bet”,
binary: true,
credentials: {
username: “dr_rep”,
password: “dbr012”
}
}
flexmonster.embedPivotComponent(“flexmonster/”, “pivotContainer”, “100%”, “615”, config, true);

Also, are there any load limitations, the application sometimes hangs when I drill down into larger quantities of data?

Regards

Hello,
 
Thank you for the question.
There is a mistake in our documentation regarding credentials, please try the following code:

var config = {
...
dataSourceType: “mondrian”,
proxyUrl: “http://localhost:50006/FlexmonsterProxy&#8221;,
catalog: “caerus_reporting.xml”,
cube: “Bet”,
binary: true,
username: “dr_rep”,
password: “dbr012″
}
...

Hope this helps.
 
Regards,
Ian

Hello Douglas and all Flexmonster users,
In version 2.3 Report Object was structured. Properties were logically grouped into sub-objects. For example, all related to data sources properties are inside dataSource sub-object now. Find more details in the documentation: Report Object.

Tanya
