BI Publisher: BIP Permissions Not Migrated Correctly (Doc ID 2918984.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 03, 2023

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 5.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The report files and data models were migrated with the catalog utility to another environment.
When checking the permissions in the target environment, the read permissions access on the objects to the default "BI Consumer" role was granted, when it originally had none.
Nothing should be added on top of the original permissions. This is causing security issues.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Migrate the report files and data models with the catalog utility
2. See that the migrated permissions are not exactly the original
3. access to the objects to the default "BI Consumer" role was granted
