          HI,

           

          Create the user and give privilege, then

           

          in Administration Tab--> go to manage privileges --> under that for every action there will be access of users, u can denied the user for edit options .

            HI ,

            Thanks for ur quick response

                  Could u pls elaborate on to which group i should map my user. I tried creating a user as USER1 and then mapping it to BI Authors . Then I logged into thru weblogic ->Mange Privileges and denied access for a particular catalog folder for USER1.

             

            But wen i logged in as user1 I was having access to the catalog folders.

            Pls help

              Hi,

               

              In

              Manage Privileges 

              "Access to answer" assign the "BI Author Role"

              so you will get access of creating reports bu not for edit

              administration-->

              Manage Privileges 

              --> Access to answers

                Hi VG ,

                             In Manage Privileges ->Access to Answers by default itself it s having BI Author Role .

                Now , the user assigned to BI Authors group has both create and edit options now .

                 

                Thanks in advance

                  Hi Niv,

                   

                   

                  Check in the privileges  under

                   

                  Home & Header --> New menu --> access to bi author role or user access granted

                   

                  Under

                   

                  Access --> access to dashboard & access to answers --> access to bi author role or user are access granted or not

                   

                   

                  Definitely it will work out

                    HI VG ,

                              

                    With your above solution , I have a user who can create and save reports . (I just created a user under BI Authors without changing any privileges.)

                     

                    The next condition is

                     

                    I want the user to ONLY see (read,traverse) some specific reports already created and not to edit them . what should I do .

                     

                    What I tried was ,

                    I clicked the PERMISSIONS tab of those specific reports and tried giving them READ or READ,TRAVERSE only . But either I am able to completely read,write and traverse or not able to access these reports.

                     

                    Could u pls suggest further .

                     

                    Note : The user created is assigned to BI Author Role.

                     

                    Thanks
