What is a Local Superuser in BI Publisher?

When Siebel Security Model is enabled on BI Publisher server, BI Publisher authenticates every logged in user by retrieving his/her privileges from Siebel application.

Now suppose Siebel application is down and you are trying to login to BIP server by BI Publisher Enterprise application. By default, BI Publisher will not be able to authenticate your login as Siebel will not return your privileges.

To handle such a situation, Local Superuser is created in BI Publisher Enterprise application. For this user, Siebel Security Authentication is bypassed and reports can be generated.


Steps to create Local Superuser

  1. In BI Publisher Enterprise Application, navigate to Security Center – Security Configuration.
  2. Check Enable Local Superuser checkbox.
  3. Specify Superuser Name and Password.
