Object Level Security at Table and Field Level for Data Modules

Data Modules do not currently have a way to specify object level security at the table or field level the way Framework Manager does. You should be able to set which tables and fields a particular user or group of users is able to see. There are many situations in which this is a critical component to being able to use Data Modules for large scale reporting.

    This would be a value to the team. Would like to see an two options though

    1. Hide the field, and reports throw and error if user without permissions runs the report/dashboard

    2. Replace the value in the field with some text eg. 'Access Denied' when user doesn't have permissions. Report/Dashboard runs but with replacement text.

    Understand that this has been added for data modules based on data servers, would be great to add something similar for data modules based on data sets
