BusinessObjects Administration – Setting up security model – Part III

In our previous blogs we have analyzed various components required for Designing security model such as List of available rights, possible user categories and finally the Security models. Before taking deep dive in to each model we need to organize BusinessObjects content at below levels

  • Reporting folders
  • Universe folders
  • User hierarchy

 You can have a look at below articles to know more about organizing contents (Content Management Plan)

BusinessObjects Administration – Content Management Procedure

BusinessObjects Administration – Content Management Plan

And the next step would be identifying required rights for each user category. You should make use of Custom Access Levels for each user category.  Refer my external blog here to understand about Custom access levels

http://blogs.hexaware.com/business-objects-boogle/businessobjects-administration-custom-access-levels/

Based on the requirement create list of rights necessary for each user category.  Consolidated list of all the rights and a custom access level grouping for admin group is depicted below.

BI 4.x Master rights

Delegated Administrators Access level

I also attached prototype of the document with this blog.  Since .xls doesn’t supported, I have exported it to .txt format . Make use of it if you want to utilize it to your requirement. Thanks for reading once again.

      Good blog Mani. This series of blogs really help administrators/architect to come out with a processed security model during Upgrade projects.

      Your blogs is really good Mani! Keep on, and you will make the BO-world be better!

      Is there a way to get the rights-setting for every tiny setting, for everyaccess-role, in a excel/separeted format?

      (Collection, Type, Right name, Status, Apply to)

      What I want to do is to create custom access levels starting from the standardsettings and add or remove specific rights.

      And, is there anywhere a description of what every tiny setting actually mean? Today I use to test and see what happens, but its not very efficient. Some of the setting is a bit cryptical described.

      This is a pretty old blog and the custom access levels that I created might not be appropriate.  However Dwayne Hoffpauir's great document below should give you a right direction.

      Hi Mani, Very good and informative blog. Can you please provide me the excel sheet which contains other teeny tiny details of all the roles, accesses, and security options so that we can create our own custom access levels? I couldn't find the document/blog by Dwayne Hoffpauir as the BOB discussion board is moved. Please provide any updated document if you have created any. cyberdude22au@yahoo.com
