User rights for viewing analytics
In many cases analytics should not be visible to everyone having right to view an AF-Database. Should be possible to direct whom should have view access to analytics.
This is an extension to the obivious right to change analytics :)

In PSE User guide, it states:
"The following objects always have Read permission regardless of their security settings, so long as the logged-in user has Read access to the PI System and the PI AF database...
-(list of other library objects)"
Is there a way around this so users with read access to elements, attributes and their templates cannot see analysis templates on the element templates? In my testing, explicit Deny does not seem to override this, but hopefully there is another way.
Another interesting observation from my testing: Analysis data reference attributes don't seem to resolve when the user doesn't have read access to the corresponding analysis:
I'm not sure there is a way around this other than to use a PI Pt DR for the output.
This is existing capability. You can decide who can read/write analyses by making the appropriate changes using something like PI System Explorer.
