    BI Security Report
    Can we create a BI security report?

    Is it possible to create a report of BI security or export the data so that security reports can be created?

    I'm just starting to set up a BI Cloud instance. I'm still trying to figure out security. It will be a major help to be able to report on security so that I can keep track of what each custom role I create can do and who is in each role.

      Hi Jerry,

      There is no out-of-the-box solution for that, but if you are using OAC, then there are several approaches you can take. None "one-click-deploy-solutions that come with the product" though.

      I'm pinging my friend Gianni as well so he can add some more details. (@ notations seem not to work in cloudcustomerconnect)

      It all depends on what do you exactly expect to see in your BI security report.

      Out of the box there isn't much, but there are ways to get almost everything out of your BI instance and then "pack" everything together based on your needs.

      I do that for example for a GDPR compliance assessment using a graph storing all the relationships between application roles and their members (inheritance on multiple levels) and linking to the various aspects of OBIEE (catalog securtiy, privileges, RPD security etc.).

      I assume you are going to use IDCS If so, you can export the roles and users

        We will be moving to IDCS. Being able to get users and roles for reporting will be helpful. But we'll also want to know what those roles are allowing a user to do and see.
