Roles are provisioned from Oracle Cloud to individual Users via the My Service view:
The following three Roles can be assigned for BICS (besides the APEX Roles):
- bi BI Cloud Service Users
- bi BI Cloud Service Advanced Content Authors
- bi BI Cloud Service Administrators
Once these predefined Roles are assigned within the My Service view, the User inherits the membership to various BICS Roles. E.g. for the bi BI Cloud Service Administrators the following Roles are inherited within BICS:
If a User would only be assigned the bi BI Cloud Service Advanced Content Authors Role, the User would inherit the following BICS Roles:
which would only provide access to Answers and Vizual Analyser, but not the web modeler or the Console.
The inheritance of the BICS roles is documented with the following diagram within the official documentation:
The BICS Application Roles can also be assigned within the Users and Roles tile under the Console view:
However, BICS Roles inherited from Cloud Roles can not be revoked here (compare the selected Application Roles with the actual assigned Application Roles of the My Account View like the screenshot from before). Thus, this can be used to assign additional roles e.g. like Finance Manager or Customer Support Role or a visibility such as “DACH” for viewing data within Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
