About Privileges and Permissions

Privileges and permissions allow you to perform specific actions, such as creating an analysis or editing a scorecard, and entitle you to access and manage objects, applications, and so on. Roles, such as BIConsumer (an Oracle-defined role), group related privileges together that pertain to specific requirements, enabling continuity and limiting access based on responsibility.

Privileges and roles govern what you can see and access in Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition. Refer to "Managing Presentation Services Privileges" in Security Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition for additional information and refer to "Who Uses the Catalog?" in Chapter 13, "Managing Objects in the Oracle BI Presentation Catalog" to learn more about permissions.
