we set access priviliges and administration rights in shared services by assigning users to particular groups. We assigned two users to the administration group 'hypadmins' who now have access to all applications. In Essbase they can access applications, affect changes in the outline, validate the outline etc. However, they cannot validate or execute business rules (Error: Cannot connect to server). The problem does not persist when connecting to the server using a different (existing) admin user. The access priviliges for all rules are set to the admin group 'hypadmins' (and no other). Can anyone help with respect to identifying the source of the problem?
p.s. Can anyone explain what the Essbase Native Security Mode is?
Thanks in advance
It might be worth having a read of the following doc in Oracle Support - "Troubleshooting Hyperion Business Rules Issues [ID 763345.1]"
Have a read through the Users and rights section
Okay, I have found the following blog on the topic. Apparently, case-sensitivity of usernames is only relevant in the context of business rules:
943380, I'm not picking on you, and I am glad you found an answer to your issue. My ire is saved for whoever thought that a blog equals copying knowledgebase articles from Oracle Support and sticking it on his blog. Why oh why oh why do I even bother paying support? And I suppose why oh why oh why do I kill myself writing blog content when I could just "borrow" it word for word from Oracle?
