By default, OBIEE 11g have three application roles:
  • BIConsumer : The base-level role that grants the user access to existing analyses, dashboards and agents, allows them to run or schedule existing BI Publisher reports, but not create any new ones. That means user can view the existing reports and dashboards.
  • BIAuthor : A role that allows users to create new analyses, dashboards and other BI objects. This role will recursively granted the privileges of BIConsumer role.
  • BIAdministrator : This role has the privileges of BIAuthor &BIConsumer roles. In addition to that this role allows the user to administer all parts of the system, including modifying catalog permissions and privileges. This user is the most privileged user in OBIEE environment.
In some cases, a need may arise to add another role that suits well between the BIConsumer and BIAuthor roles; one called BIAnalyst, that allows users to create and edit analyses, but not creates new dashboards.
