Dashboard Access Rights


Hi experts!

Within the BI Launch Pad, I have denied access to all of the applications under the Applications area (which is also the panel on the right side of the screen). However, as soon as I remove the Web Intelligence application my users can no longer run a Dashboard. They receive a message that says "Cannot excess external data. Session closed".

I have confirmed that I have provided my users with access to the Connections, Universes, QaaWS and the folder that the WebI resides in. Everything works great until I remove access to the Web Intelligence application. Any ideas? The Dashboard is built off of a WebI. Is that why? I can run Crystal Reports and WebIs fine...just the Dashboard is being fussy.

We are on BO 4.0, SP5.

Thanks so much!
