Folder Permissions in Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI) (Doc ID 2170885.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 08, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Taleo Platform Cloud Service - Reporting for OBI - Version 14A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Important Notes:

This document provides information regarding the configuration of permissions through the Catalog screen in Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI).

  • Permissions can be applied to any content in the catalog including agents, analyses (reports), dashboards, folders, saved filters, etc.

Modification of permissions through the Catalog screen is not supported by Oracle Taleo.

  • 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
    • The folder would have to be recreated to restore the default permissions
  • 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
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 Knowledge Document ID 2054560.1: How To: Secure Folders in Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI) for more information on this feature.
