Configuring OBIEE Server Admin User Permissions in Enterprise Manager 11g

This section discusses the necessary permission configuration for using OBIEE.

Note: For use with 11g only.

The user that you configure in the Server Setup page must have impersonate permissions in Enterprise Manager. In release 10g, the BI Administrator satisfies this requirement. In release 11g, the user must be assigned the BI System application role.

To enable the BI System application role in Enterprise Manager 11g:

  1. Sign in to Webserver Enterprise Manager as an administrator.

  2. In the left side navigation, click Business Intelligence > coreapplication.

  3. When the new page appears, click Configure and manage Application Roles.

  4. When the new page appears, click BI System.

  5. In the users column, click Add User and add the same user that you entered as the Admin User on the Server Setup page.

  6. Click the OK button to save your changes.
