Does anyone know if you can mask the Actual Cost in the matrices? We are thinking of putting in actual resource rates into that column for certain type of reporting. We would then set the matrices to private with only specific people having access. The problem is on the database side we would want that information masked. I'm not sure if it is possible, or would be something our DBAs would need to do on their side.
Putting a resource's actual cost into Clarity is not recommended at all. A very clever person with modest reporting capabilities would be able to expose those values. If you have an over-ridding need to have that value in Clarity, and not within a custom attribute in a highly restricted page, then you should put the value into the Standard Cost field in the Rate Matrix. Standard Cost is not commonly used in the application unless you are using some of the Federal Contracting functions. The Actual Cost from the Rate Matrix is used pervasively in Clarity views, reporting and portlets, and those values will be readily exposed.
John, thank you for the response. We have taken it under advisement and pursuing another solution for this.
