Manual Essbase Access Information

Manual access to the Oracle Essbase database using MaxL commands is prohibited except under emergency situations in which Oracle needs such access to respond to a service request filed on behalf of the subscriber. The service request should give explicit permission to Oracle to manually access the Essbase database to address issues. Statistics on manual access of the database available in the Manual MaxL Execution Count table of the Activity Report includes the following:

  • Time: The time at which the MaxL commands were executed against the database
  • SR #: The service request number based on which the database was manually accessed
  • MaxL: The MaxL command that was executed

You can use this table to audit manual Essbase access and the activities performed through such access. If you identify an unauthorized manual access, add the information from this section to a service request so that Oracle can immediately investigate the incident and take remedial actions, if needed.
