I have a need to filter the report data by each user and I found an existing parameter in BAM called [PARAMETER: ReportViewerUserName]. I thought I could use a filter rule like this: "the name of the userID column in my data table" equals Value [PARAMETER: ReportViewerUserName], but this does not work. How does the parameter work? What is the form of the username it refers to? Has anyone had any similar issues?
If you want to make data sensitive to users, you can use Security Filters.
You can read more about that in http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E15586_01/integration.1111/e10224/bam_data_objects.htm#BABJIDDB (you must find a similar guide for your own version of BAM).
