bi folders permission


Customer trying to customize access rights on BI folders.
They have a user that is assigned to BI Administrator role (so it inherits also BI consumer and BI author) in the OBI stripe. They created a custom folder and set "No Access" for BI Consumer role. After that, the user was not able to access the directory. It is expected that the user would still be able to access the folder due to the "Full Control" condition on BI administrator.
Need the logic behind this permission setup. It seems that the intersection (AND) of the condition is evaluated here, and not the union (OR) as we would have expected.
