Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

Describes how to restrict access to Business Insight and Business Insight Advanced tools.

Symptom

Restrict access to Business Insight and Business Insight Advanced.


Resolving the problem

To deny users from using the Business Insight tool:                         
1) Go the IBM Cognos Administration page and click on Security tab     
2) Under the Capabilities link, click the Set Properties on the Executive Dashboard capability. To deny access to a user, deny the execute and traverse rights.                                           
                                                                       
To deny users access to the Business Insight Advanced tool:             
                                                                       
To use Report Studio or Business Insight Advanced, the Report Studio capability must be granted. To further refine who can use Business Insight Advanced and who can use Report Studio use the User Interface Profiles (Professional for RS and Express for BIA):   
                                                                       
1) Go the IBM Cognos Administration page and click on Security tab     
2) Under the Capabilities link, click the Set Properties on the Report Studio capability. Users who need to use either BIA or RS will need this capability.

3. To refine who can use BIA or RS click on "User Interface Profiles" on the left hand side of the screen. Two options should be presented: Professional and Express. Users who need access to Report Studio should be granted permission on "Professional" and users who need access to BIA should be granted access to "Express".  Note that as of Cognos 10, there is no longer a Report Studio Express.
