    Field Level Security and Folder Permissions
    We want all user types to share one folder, but have user type permissions that can restrict certain confidential fields

    Hi - We are trying to find the best set-up for our Self-Serve folders in OBI.  In BO, we had a different folder for each User Group.  The problem here is that we had to replicate the same report in each folder, removing confidential fields for those groups that should not see them.  When any type of standard report revision was made, the change had to be replicated on each of the reports located in the various folders.

    Is it possible to have just ONE Self-Serve folder that every User Type has access to? ... and then each group will have the appropriate field level access that would allow the confidential fields to be suppressed when applicable?
