User hierarchies provide flexibility in element browsing and report drilling. They are groups of attributes and their relationships to each other, arranged in ways that make sense to a business organization. As the structure of your business intelligence system evolves, you can modify the design of a user hierarchy to include additional attributes or to limit user access to certain attributes.
For conceptual information on user hierarchies, see Creating Hierarchies to Organize and Browse Attributes.
This section describes how to use Architect to create and modify user hierarchies.
