BICS: Data Filters and BI Cloud Service Administrators Role

Similar to the on-Premise.rpd File, Data Filters can be configured using the Oracle BICS web modeller. These Data Filters are added to the Analysis to apply a particular data visibilty for respective Application Roles. E.g. Users belonging to Application Role “Sales Managers West” should only be able to see data from the West Region, but not middle or East.

Within the web modeller of BICS this can be done using the Data Filters Tab on a Dimension or Fact logical table:

This is similar to OBIEE’s .rpd file, where the Data Filters have been defined also on the Application roles:

Once, the logical Dimension Table is used within an Analysis the defined Data Filter is appended for the defined Application Roles to the Analysis to restrict visibility as row level security.

However, if the User is also a member of the BI Cloud Service Administrators Role then the Data Filters are not applied. Users who are members of this Role are not restricted in terms of data visibility.
