Master Data Services Add-In for Excel 2016 are not consistent with MDS Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    The domain based attribute drop-down functionality is not working for users within the Excel Add-In interface, however, it works as expected in the Master Data Services Explorer interface.  The security is supposed to be consistent as per the documentation that I have read.

    Also, the functionality works as expected for me in Excel but I'm an administrator which implies that it's a permissions issue.

    Is this a known issue or is there a separate security configuration for the Excel Add-In for 'read' and 'update' attribute permissions?

    Below is the user experience for a user with 'read' and 'update' permissions, who can successfully select the values within MDS Explorer. The expected result is a list of names, but it's only showing the current value and a value 'DomainEntity' with a GUID.
