How To View User Permissions in the RPD for Fusion Applications Business Intelligence (Doc ID 1408832.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 11, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Application Toolkit - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Explanation of Task

This document describes how to find which permissions are required for a user to view a specified piece of data using Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence.

When a user is logged in to Fusion Applications and attempting to use Business Intelligence reports to view data, they may encounter a situation in which they do not have access to the data they are trying to view.  This can manifest as a 10058 error.  The text for the error message will report an issue with the ODBC connection.  The problem with the ODBC connection is caused by lack of permissions on the data the user is trying to view.

Fusion Applications user security is designed so that a user can only view data in Business Intelligence that they can view in the Fusion Applications.  Data that is not accessible to the user in Fusion Applications will not be viewable using Business Intelligence reports.  For further information about this, please review the Fusion Applications Application Security Guide.

An example is that a Payables user would not be permitted to view payroll data unless the same user was enabled to use the payroll application.
