This section lists security changes in Oracle Business Intelligence Applications Release 188.8.131.52.
Note the following changes to Oracle Business Intelligence Applications security in this release:
RPD files now have RPD-specific passwords that are used to encrypt the contents. The RPD password is stored in an external credential store when you publish an RPD in Fusion Middleware Control, so that the Oracle BI Server can retrieve the password to load the RPD.
Groups no longer exist in the RPD as objects. Instead, data access security is implemented based on the application roles to which a user belongs.
Application roles are managed in an external policy store. Application role objects exist in the RPD, but these objects are pointers (references) to the externally managed roles.
Users are managed in an external authentication provider and are no longer managed in the RPD. User objects exist in the RPD, but these objects are pointers (references) to the externally managed users.
In this release, any named user can be granted administrative permissions if desired, unlike previous releases, in which there was a single user with administrative permissions who was named Administrator.
