OBIEE 11g How To Share A Dashboard For Read-Only And Not Allow Catalog Access (Doc ID 2157827.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 03, 2016

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.160119 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You have a business need to share a Dashboard so that other users have read-only view access to the Dashboard, but they are not able to access this specific Dashboard via the Catalog link in OBIEE (or Catalog Manager) to copy or archive the Dashboard.

The user(s) do need to have the Catalog link available for other Dashboards; therefore, disabling the Catalog link is not an option.

The scenario may be similar to analyst from Department A needs to create a Dashboard with filters for analyst in Department B, but they need to restrict copying the Dashboard and subsequently editing.
