Steps to configure Impersonation
- Configuring the Impersonate User in Oracle Business Intelligence 12c
- The 11g Oracle.bi.server.impersonate user permission does not exist in 12c. To create a user or application role with permission to impersonate, you must create a permission grant using the Resource Type oracle.bi.user, with a name of an asterisk (*) and an action of "impersonate".
- Connect to Fusion Middleware Control for your Oracle BI EE instance using an administrator account.
- From the Weblogic Domain menu, select Security.
- Click Application Policies.
- Click Create to display the Create Application Grant page.
- In the Permissions section, click Add (+).
- Select Resource Types.
- Select oracle.bi.user from the Resource Type list.
- Click Continue to display the Add Permission dialog.
- Enter an asterisk (*) in the Resource Name field.
- Select impersonate in the Permission Actions section.
- Click Select.
- Now add a new grantee.
- In the Grantee section click Add (+) to display the Add Principal dialog.
- Note: You can choose to grant the newly created permission to either an application role or a user. In this example, we choose a user.
- Select User from the drop-down list.
- Select Includes from the Principal Name list, and enter an asterisk (*) into the field.
- Click the search arrow icon (>) to display a list of users.
- Select the user you want to give the permission to and click OK.
- This example uses "WebLogic".
- Click OK on the Create Application Grant page.
- This gives the impersonate permission to the user.
