Which version are u using?
We too faced the same issues few months before, it's really very Strange Security Issues in Obiee11g
FYI, in obiee11g(126.96.36.199.0) version we have faced Application role name issue (It should be only character) if your keeping like below then the application role is not working properly as we expect permission setup.
So Please don’t keep the role like 01_Manager,02_Stusent,-,#,numbers etc.
Due to this issues affected our catalog object level permission
I am using obiee 188.8.131.52 and have applied all patches.
for other obejcts security is working fine.
It is not working only for subject areas.
In the Presentation Services, under "Administration" - "Manage Privileges" do you have access to the subject area denied for these users/groups/roles?
That will make sure they don't see it in Answers.
If you deny access in the Repository they might get to the subject area but shouldn't get any data back.
Yes I have denied acces to a users for the subject area in the presentation services, manage privilages.
but still they can see that subject area and fetch data from them
We had this issue in 184.108.40.206 but haven't had the problem come up in 220.127.116.11.1 (not to say that it could though, which is very scary actually).
The proposed solution was to install Patch 12830486 OCT 2011 CPU - UPDATE FOR OBIEE 18.104.22.168.0
I was pointed to look at this:
Where To Find OBIEE 10g and 11g Critical Patch Updates (CPU) Patches And/Or Security Alerts (Doc ID 1297349.1)
I would open an SR with Oracle right away, and try to capture the problem happening as much as you can (it was hard to "prove" the error with them for us).
That patch helped our issue though.
(This might be included in Bundle Patch 1 or Bundle Patch 2, which I would definitely try patching on your system if you meet the requirements)
