Model Roles vs. Selective Access

edited March 2023 in Academy Discussions

Model Roles and Selective Access are both used to restrict access within an Anaplan model, but they are used in different ways, as you learned in the prior two lessons.

When choosing between establishing a Role or establishing Selective Access in your model, consider the following:

  • Who will need access to the model?
  • What do they need to see in the model?
  • What do they need to do in the model, e.g., will they be viewing and/or inputting data?
  • How will access be managed going forward?


Review this comparison of Model Roles vs. Selective Access to help choose the best option for your organization’s model.
