Goal

Customer has installed OBIEE 11g, he created a test user and assigned it to the BIConsumer role. Now he went to Manage Privileges to lock down the BIConsumer role but can't lock it down completely. Customer is unable to remove the option:

1) Home
2) Catalog
3) New -> Published Reporting -> Report Job
4) Advanced

Think of this user as an executive-type user who only wants to see dashboard content and is confused by anything else.
