The changes in this release significantly enhance our BI and

Innovations in release 2.5.

Source Based Access Filter
Yellowfin has introduced an unparalleled security processes for BI
applications - Access Filters. Access filters provide a method for
ensuring cell-level data security and complete report personalisation.
Access filters relate a user to the source system that they are
accessing and ensure that only relevant data is returned to them in a
query. For every data request additional filtering criteria is
dynamically inserted into the query at run-time to restrict the result
set to information that the user is permitted to access.

The most compelling change within this release is to the view and meta
data builder. This allows non-developers to build far more complex and
richer data views through a drag and drop interface..

have enhanced our integration capability with LDAP and Active
directories that allow you to provision not only users but groups from
these applications - reducing the need for replication of
administration functions in Yellowfin.
