Mass Delete / update of user assignments in selective access.

Hello Anaplanners,

 

For one of our customers we have a requirement to dynamically update the selective access permissions to users. As I understand we can only import into Anaplan Users. I tried importing blank data into Users tab for list permissions but it still retains previous data. Further we cannot create a delete action for the users.

 

Any help in this area will be highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Nayeem

Hi @nabdul 

 

An alternative method could be to import the 'model role' as 'no access' which clears all selective access and then import the selective active permissions you require. 

 

I hope this helps!

 

Thanks,

@nabdul ,

Take a look at this post where I describe how to set it up.

Hi,

 

You can set up an import in the Users settings (from a dashboard/file/API) to create new users and modify their roles and selective accesses (also access to several items of the same list); you can't delete users or grant admin access.

To remove the selective accesses, you should give the user "No Access" and then update it with the new information.

follow Rob's guide.
Quick addition to it:
- never include yourself (the person running the action) in the process
- setting user to no access kicks them out, don't do it during a day's work
