R13.19A OTBI Direct Database Query Privilege Change
SummaryIn R13.19A OTBI direct database query has been disabled by default. To prevent reports generating system errors, BI Administrator can modify BI privileges to revert this change.
What is the Change?
Prior to R13.19A, BI Administrator has the privilege to create and run Direct Database Query in BI Answers. In R13.19A, this feature has been disabled by default. Specifically, two privileges that control direct database query access, namely ‘Edit Direct Database Analysis’ and ‘Execute Direct Database Analysis’, have been denied for authenticated users.
Reports created with ‘Direct Database Query’ option prior to R13.19A will receive a system error when executed in R13.19A. To prevent the system error, customers can revert the R13.19A privilege changes by granting BI Administrator privilege to both ‘Edit Direct Database Analysis and ‘Execute Direct Database Analysis’.
