    Using Essbase security filter in OBIEE request ?


      We would like to use OBIEE with Essbase source. We already use Essbase security filter (on dimensions).

      For example, "userA" is allowed to access to Entity A and not Entity B and the opposite for "userB".

      If I loggin as "userA" in OBIEE, is it possible for OBIEE to connect to Essbase with "userA" so that Essbase return data only on Entity A and not Entity B ?

          The way let OBIEE users, have Essbase security filters running for them, is by integrating OBIEE and EPM using Single Sign On. When, both OBIEE and EPM talk to the same Identity Store like OID/MSAD, you can set this up. For more integration steps, refer to http://www.google.com.sg/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CDAQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2Ftechnetwork%2Fmiddleware%2Fbi-foundation%2Fhfm-sso-obiee-1112x-1835570.pdf&ei=O7ElUeCTApGzrAeelIHwCw&usg=AFQjCNE1BzMQU6Cwny-0IwcvxkfxeqlONg&bvm=bv.42661473,d.bmk

          Hope this helps.

          Thank you,
