BEx to Portal Question

Hey People,

I know this questions has been repeated on SDN, but since there was no concrete answer am posting this question again.

I know that in Query Designer we can publish reports to both Portal & Roles, now I have 2 questions:

1. In Query Designer when I choose the option, Publish reports to Portal , I know that an iview will be created.

My question is after we choose the above function, where exactly will the query be published in the Portal? It would be great if someone could also post the path or the directory's in the portal where this report will be saved.

2. In the query designer when I choose the option, Publish reports to Roles, I know queries will be saved to these roles and will be accessible to all the users who are authorized under these roles.

Now my question is, will these queries saved in the roles still be accessible to users from Portal, and if they are accessible how will they execute these reports from Portal?

Thanks & regards

Guru

    1. when you publish it will come up with the content directory, you can create a folder and when you publish you can specify where to save the iview and it will be saved in a folder you specified.

    2. Basically there will be two role, one created on Portal and anther one on Portal. The role on BI will validate if you have access to the data in the data provider. The role in portal validate if you can see a particular iview or not. Let's assume that I published a report to a role called X and also there is a role called Y on portal. When I login into portal, if I have the role Y assigned to me, I will see the query but if I clicked on the link and accessing the data will be detemined by the role X.

    thanks.

      Thanks Kartikey for the answer. Yea Portal is configured properly and I actually wanted to know how it works. I joined recently in this job and my role is production support. So thought having some knowledge would be better.
