In this example a new Employee called “OTBIUser” should receive access to OTBI. The User should receive the following Roles by the Cloud Administrator:
To grant the User “OTBIUser” access requires to follow the TechNote from Cloud R12 and onwards as the standard BI Roles (such as BI Author or BI Consumer) can’t be assigned to Users directly any more. Instead, it is required to create a custom Role based on the standard (OOTB) Role and assign those custom role to the User to act e.g. as BI Administrator.
After the User has received the role, an Administrator must run the “Retrieve Latest LDAP Changes” ESS Job to reflect these changes. This process may actually take up to 8 hrs. for the changes to take effect.
