In administration in OBIEE you can assign specific rights to dashboards and / or analysis to roles or users.
So you can assign general dashboard create / edit rights to any user, but then restrict the rights to specific dashboards on a 'per case' basis.
Thanks for the quick response, but in OBIEE administration Dashboard create are already granted for BIConsumer, Could you please elaborate on to what you mean by 'per case' basis.
I am assuming you wanted me to define Dashboard permissions to specific roles in the web catalog permisssions for these dashboards. But the issue/questions is if user like the above mentioned case where A1 user who has Dept 1 user role and Dept 2 Writer role , this user is getting BIAuthor , BIConsumer Roles but this user isnt supposed to write/delete anything for D1 Dept 1 dashboard which is still being able to.
Thanks in advance.
Any Help .??

I think your issue is being caused because you are mixing the out-of-the-box roles with your own custom ones. You can't easily restrict access at the dashboard level using BIConsumer if this role is given to multiple types of user in your company. I suggest you define custom roles and apply these to dashboard objects in the catalog.
I think creating new custom roles with custom policies is good idea, I will try to implement that. Currently I am explicitly denying access to those roles for the catalog objects where ever there are conflicts like this.
I will leave this thread open , to see if there are any other possibilities.
