Security and connection problems

Hi everybody,

I'm using SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.1 Support Pack 4 Version:

I have granted my user rights as a Business AL for the universe and his specific folder

My user is having a problem using my universe. This is the first time he has entered to use it on the BI Launch Pad.

He has been able to enter the folder and see the reports I have made for him in advance.

He was able to start the Web Intelligence in java form and see the universe, add objects to the "result object" and "query filters" and see the results in the "data preview".

when he clicks "run query" he gets to the see for a slight second that a table was built for his query, but he's immediately thrown out with the following error message:

I've logged on on his computer with my own credentials and didn't have a problem.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance

Hi Hadas,

What is the behavior observed if the user in place is a part of administrator group ? Does it work ?

You can try to add the user and provide full control on Universe, Connections, OLAP connections to see if it helps !

In order for a user to be able to refresh a Webi report he/she needs:

- Appropriate Rights to the application "WebIntelligence"

- View on Demand Right to the report itself or its folder

- View on Demand Right to the involved universe(s)

- View on Demand Right on the underlying universe connection(s)


Full Control rights are not necessary.

"View on Demand" Right is a built-in ACL (Access Control List) and can be further fine tuned using Custom AL (CALs).
