How To Remove Or Add Specific OBIEE 12c Data Visualization | Visual Analyzer Permissions And Access (Doc ID 2102444.1)

Last updated on JULY 21, 2017

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You may want to remove the ability for your user population to use or access data visualization in OBIEE 12c (licensing or other segmentation reasons).  By default in OBIEE 12c, the permission "va.author" is granted to the BIContentAuthor role.  It is not always feasible to remove the BIContentAuthor and all of it's inherited and granted permission sets; therefore, how can one just limit  or grant access to the data visualization permission?
