Administering and Securing the Environment

The new WebFOCUS Client repository and authorization security model uses an implementation of Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) to enforce security across all resources in the repository. The flexibility of the new model enables an administrator to implement security at a granular level for every resource in the WebFOCUS repository, if needed. User actions can be permitted for individual combinations of users and resources. Access can be granted or specifically denied on a group or individual level, and it can be inherited from higher folders.

Resource Analyzer and Resource Governor help Information Systems (IS) organizations analyze and control end user data access, as well as provide site-specific control options.
