Security issue with Project Specific Landing Area in Oracle EDQ (Doc ID 2161319.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 08, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Enterprise Data Quality - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In EDQ 12.2.1, Project-Specific landing areas correspond to the internal ID of the projects. However, User A with access only to Project A is still able to create a data store and snapshot files in the landing area of Project B to which they don't have access.

A user can do this by simply unchecking the project-specific landing area checkbox and specifying the path, "\[internal id of Project B\file_name]," assuming User A knows the internal id of Project B. Please note the 'Add Project' permission is not given to the group to which the user belongs.

This is a bug that is fixed in EDQ and later
