We might come across a situation where we need to Control or Limit the access to OBIEE Home and Header menu options. Being an industry leading BI tool, we don’t have any easy process to address this in OBIEE. So end up with changing the saw.headers.xml file to just hide/display. Again it is System-wide setting.
But in new OBI 18.104.22.168.0 we have flexibility to limit the access to either User/Group/Application role. And also we can do this from OBIEE 11G Prsentation service Administration UI itself.
