Consider a simple example, you have a global universe that is used by several departments. Since the users of each department must access only their data from their department, you created as many universes as departments by only changing the ODBC connection for each department ...
This forces you to maintain X different universe only because of a connection problem. There are fortunately a simple solution to this, which is called connections overload.
Accordingly, users of this group who will use reports based on this universe will only access to data returned by the restriction. This ensures that a department will only access data returned by the connection of his department.
Warning: the default connection in "File-> Settings" should be "widest", the one you need to administrate the universe.
