OBIEE12c: Change in the way Permissions are applied In Catalog in Comparison With 11g (11.1.1.7.x ) (Doc ID 2244411.1)

Last updated on MARCH 22, 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

For folders which have permission set as 'NO ACCESS' for BIConsumer role, are visible in OBIEE 11.1.1.7.x for weblogic user. However the same folder with same permissions is not visible for weblogic user with BIConsumer role in OBIEE 12.2.1.2.
In 11.1.1.7.x it used to be 'If a user belongs to 2 Application Roles which have conflicting permissions, least restrictive permission should apply' - so in this case user should be able to see the folder since he has access to it via BIAdministrator App Role.

Has the re been a change in the way permissions are applied ?
