Looking for more security out of PeopleSoft query? There was another little gem of a new feature released with image 20 – Advanced Query Security. It only captured a small paragraph in the image overview but is a nice feature to gain more security out of PeopleSoft query.
From the image overview document:
Added the Advanced Query Security feature, which is a framework that allows authorized users to set up secured fields for PeopleSoft queries. Authorized users determine which fields to secure for a query and the type of security for those fields, such as User ID, Role, or Permission List. Then they map the secured field name with the PeopleSoft field name and run the Apply Security process. Optionally, filters can be applied to the secured fields based on the PeopleSoft product name such as General Ledger, Purchasing, and so on.
More information on the setup can be found online in PeopleBooks by clicking on this link.
Use some level of caution in selecting only the right level of experienced users who have access to this as to not impact the data returned on queries and potentially impact performance. But it could be a very valuable tool if applied selectively.
