    Restrict OBIEE Agent to deliver the contents to authorized LDAP users only

    2672775

      Hello Everyone,

       

      We are using OBIEE 11.1.1.7.1. I know OBIEE agents has functionality where we can deliver the report or dashboard's contents to any user including users outside of organization or deliver it to any personal email id like "user@gmail.com".

       

      We have a requirement where if anyone is trying to send any report or dashabord data to any other email id except organization's employee email address then OBIEE should either block it or should not deliver it. Is this cutomization possible in OBIEE 11.1.1.7.1?

       

      Please let me know.

       

      Thanks,

      Amit

          Hi  Amit,

           

          Wouldn't it be easier to just disable the Option to send emails outside your Company?

           

          As usual you can modify the SMTP-Settings of your Exchange-Server and there you can define some stuff like that.

           

          With this solution it is guaranteed that no one can send emails out of your Company with the agents.

           

          best regards,

          Pius

            Hi Amit,

            your only option within the agent/OBIEE would be if all your users allowed to receive the reports are OBIEE users and so you can run the agent as "Recipient".

            Otherwise what you look for isn't an OBIEE thing but, as PiusV say, a SMTP config.

            When running the agent with a specified user all the recipients get the same content, OBIEE doesn't really use the recipient list other than just to send all the emails to the list, so you can't have a condition applied on the members of the list.

            Set some security in your SMTP, at least you are sure that nobody (by mistake ... or not) send out around your numbers.
