In EPM, if you belong to a group provisioned with only the "Explorer" role under Reporting And Analysis in Shared Services, you cannot run any Financial Reporting (FR) report in Workspace. When you try to run the report, you get the following error message: "Required application module reporting.reportview is not configured." If the same group is provisioned with both the "Viewer" and "Explorer" roles, then you (and other members in the group) can run FR reports without any error.

In EPM, there was no need to provision users and groups with the "Viewer" role to enable the viewing of reports. The "Explorer" role alone was sufficient.

Is it necessary now to be provisioned with both the "Viewer" and "Explorer" roles in order to view reports in EPM
