Dynamic Security white paper
From Richard Tkachuk’s site, a new paper on setting up simple dynamic security in AS2005:
…although it doesn’t mention any of the more complex ways of implementing dynamic security, such as calling a sproc to return the allowed member set or persisting the permissions inside a measure group. Incidentally there was an interesting thread on the MSDN Forum recently that had some interesting comparisons between how these two approaches performed:
To be honest I’ve gone off the idea of dynamic security because of the performance implications – it stops you making full use of caching. It would be interesting to see a comparison of query performance in complex security scenarios between dynamic security and creating individual roles.
