Today, we’ll talk about an error message you might get when you access the input controls for filtering your WebI reports for a newly created user or existing user. Below is the screen shot of the error message.
For a new or existing user, ensure that the user has all the desired access to Connection, Universe and the Folder of the WebI report. Unless the user has the access to the above entities it is not possible for them to get to a point where they can access the WebI report and extract data from it.
So, after the access to the above entities are set, open the CMC and go to Applications section (CMC > Application). In the list select Web Intelligence (CMC > Application > Web Intelligence).
From the User Security window, select User Security tab and click Add Principals.
It is in the Add Principals window, that the desired user is given the access to add.I had provided the access as Full Control, View On Demand, Schedule and View.
I hope, this solves your problem.
