Birst subject area and space access

Infor Distribution Analytics Content is delivered with a Default Subject Area and several Custom Subject Areas. The Default Subject Area is a listing of all attributes and measures in the space. Most users, except those with the highest permissions, do not see the Default Subject Area. Users have access to certain Custom Subject Areas depending on their role.

Each of these Custom Subject Areas corresponds to a domain:

  • Accounts Payable
  • Accounts Receivable
  • General Ledger
  • Inventory
  • Price Discount
  • Purchasing
  • Sales
  • Total Warehouse Logistics
  • Warehouse Transfers
  • Master
  • Time

Access to Birst spaces is controlled by Space Groups. By default, Infor Distribution Analytics content is further controlled by enabling certain Infor OS Portal or Infor Ming.le roles to have access to specific Birst spaces.

This table shows the Infor Ming.le security roles and the Custom Subject Area and Space Groups each role is synchronized to:
