Silo Security RRS feed

  • Question

  • The company where this CRM is running is heavily "siloed" -- vertical security where each business unit wishes to seclude its data from all the others.  That's fine and I've set that up.

    However, there are a few players who have been invited to participate in another BU's soiree.  I'm pretty sure it can't be done but I need to ask, can I effect some arrangement where a user is seemingly in two BU's in terms of access privileges?  By that I am excluding the solution of managing a blizzard of record sharing.

    PS- sure would be nice if one could assign a unit-A inherited role to a unit-B user!  But even if that would work it would be a data base hack.

  • The only way to do this is to have a Parent BU and place the two BU's under the Parent.  The few players that need access to both BU's can then be given Parent / Child rights on the BU's.
