Web Intelligence Security Best Practices


Hi All,

We are in the process of starting to use web intelligence. I am puttng together a security model for it and I have some questions around best practices. We have a fairly simple two tier security model so far, end users and creators. Creators will be able to create reports in certain folders and everyone else will be able to run and refresh those reports they can see.

  1. I was going to create a group for all the creators and assign them to a custom access level in the web intelligence application. Then they would also need to be in another creator group for the particular folder. So they would be able to the create reports in that folder and execute reports in another.
  2. For all the end users, they need to be able to view and refresh reports, drilling, data tracking, etc. if they have access to them. Is the best practice then to just assign the Everyone group the out of the box view on demand access level?

I have been digging around looking for resources and welcome anyone's input or ideas on the subject.

Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.
