"Created By" On BI Publisher Reports & Folders Have Names of Users Who Are Not BI Authors (Doc ID 2873832.1)

Last updated on JUNE 05, 2022

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Cloud Service - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



Users in BI Publisher have noticed that the "Created By", on some reports and folders, contain the usernames of users that either do not have the BI Production Author application access in Primavera Admin or users that do have this permission.  These users never created the reports or folders.

There is no particular report where "Created By" shows as the user logged in and viewing the report in the catalog.

This occurs with Custom Reports and with the Primavera reports in the P6Reports folder.


The "Created By" on reports and folders should show as the user that created the report, not the user that is logged in.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1) Log into the Cloud Portal.
2) Click the Oracle BIP link.
3) Click Catalog.
4) Navigate to Shared Folders --> <Customer> --> Resource Management
5) Observe the "Create By", for some reports, will have the username of the user that is logged in.
