Business Objects 4.1 – Security Approach – Functional / Access


here you find one of my two security approaches for the Business Objects 4.1 Environment.

Functional / Access Approach
Groups: F_Reporter F_Scheduler F_PowerUser A_Marketing A_Sales A_Production
Folder Top Level AL_F_Reporter (*1) AL_F_Scheduler (*2)



View_This_Only(*4) View_This_Only View_This_Only
Marketing (AL_F_Reporter) (AL_F_Scheduler) (AL_F_PowerUser) AL_A_Marketing (*5)
Sales (AL_F_Reporter) (AL_F_Scheduler) (AL_F_PowerUser) AL_A_Sales
Production (AL_F_Reporter) (AL_F_Scheduler) (AL_F_PowerUser) AL_A_Production

(**) Notes:

(*1) = like “Edit Query”, “Create New Report”, “Delete Report”

(*2) = like “Schedule Document to run”,”Schedule to Destination”

(*3) = like “Create User”,”Add User to Group””Delete Objects”

(*4) = like “View Objects” at Object (Top Level), without inheritance

(*5) = “View Object”
