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)

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

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.
