(SAS 9.2) To get the SAS BI Dashboard to work appropriately, the users who have Role level access to modify and create Dashboards MUST also have read/execute/write access to the BIDashboard configuration folder (example of this location: C:\SAS\EBIserver\Lev1\AppData\SASBIDashboard4.2)
1. SAS Management Console:
The Group "BI Dashboard Administrators" by default is assigned to the Role "BI Dashboard: Administration". This must be assigned to those users who will be creating and modifying BI Dashboards.
Role "BI Dashboard: Administration" allows the SAS Administrator to Modify the Access Controls granted to BI Dashboard Administrators.
Finally, the Group "BI Dashboard Users" provides general viewing access of content for the SAS BI Dashboard product ~ meaning that if the Dashboard is going to move to the SAS Portal, those users should be included within this group.
2. Windows File Level Security:
Folder Level Access is then required for all SAS BI Dashboard Administrators.
