OTAC/TEE: Folder Permissions in OBI
(Doc ID 2170885.1)
Last updated on OCTOBER 28, 2019
Applies to:Oracle Taleo Platform Cloud Service - Reporting for OBI - Version 17.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This document provides information regarding the configuration of permissions through the Catalog screen in Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI).
** IMPORTANT NOTES **
Modification of permissions through the Catalog screen is not supported by Oracle Talent Acquisition Cloud.
Specifications through the permissions link in OBIEE can override Folder Security in Oracle BI Administration
Roles and Catalog groups are restricted for Oracle Taleo users and so once a role or catalog group is removed or deleted from the permissions in OBIEE, it cannot be re-added
Oracle Taleo requires authentication of all users through SmartOrg Administration and therefore an OBI user added through OBIEE permissions may appear as an "unknown account" after an upgrade to a new OBI tenant
If a Role is set to "No Access" on a folder, this has the potential to restrict the folder for all users -- including System Administrators
The supported process for securing content in Oracle Business Intelligence is by using the Folder Security feature in Configuration > Reporting and Analytics Administration > Oracle BI Administration as this method will be unaffected by upgrades. Refer to How To: Secure Folders in OBI for more information on this feature.
