The Security API of the Reports Software Development Kit (RSDK) enables you to integrate your own security model with the Reports Server. Oracle Reports Services enables you to plug in any security you wish, using the provided API.
The Security API can control:
Who has access to each report
When a report can be run
Which servers and printers can be used to run a report
Which report parameters a user can edit with what range of values
The RSDK includes a tutorial that shows you how to integrate your own security using an XML file to store the authorization information. At the end of this tutorial, you will be able to:
Implement a security class with Oracle Reports Services
Register a security class with Oracle Reports Services
Use the security class with Oracle Reports Services
For the tutorial and more information, refer to the Reports Software Development Kit (RSDK) on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN): on the Oracle Reports page (
