Selective access in dropdown list




How can i apply the selective access write only in my dropdown list ?


I have a list with selective access both write and read and in my dropdown list i only want to allow users to select those members that they have write access.


Thanks in advance for helping.






  • Hi, 


    You can use dependent dropdown option in Anaplan. You will have selective option over there itself


    Please check this video

  • Thanks for responding @Sai_Bharadwaj_Venati, my issue was the user can select the list even when their access are only Read. I have  checked in Anapedia and can see that once picklist is used, the Read or Write access is being ignored. 


    Is there other workaround i can apply to limit the user to only select those list that they have write access.

    There should be a setting in the line item formatting that allows you to enable selective access for the drop down.



  • @tompatrick.ting 


    While setting up the dropdown line item, kindly tick the 'Selective Access' boolean to activate the same. 


    I assume you have already checked the 'Selective Access Enabled?' boolean from configure section of the list. Otherwise the sol'n won't work.


    I hope it helps



  • Hi @anand.shekhawat and @ChrisAHeathcote 


    Yes, I enabled the Selective access in the list and enabled the line item Filter for Selective access.


    My problem is once i provide the user Read Access to certain list member, that Read access will also be available in the user dropdown list.


    I only want to allow the user to only select those list member that they will have Write access.
