Users with the appropriate permissions can create and issue a direct database
request directly to a physical back-end database. The results of the request can
be displayed and manipulated within Oracle BI Answers, and subsequently
incorporated into Oracle BI Interactive Dashboards and Oracle BI Delivers.

The following privilege settings in Oracle BI Presentation Services Administration
control whether you can create and issue physical requests:

Edit Direct Database Requests: If this privilege is set for you, you can create
direct database requests. By default, this privilege is set only for users defined as
Presentation Server Administrators.

125

Execute Direct Database Requests: If this privilege is set for you, you can issue
physical requests. By default, this privilege is not enabled for anyone. It can be
changed by a Presentation Server Administrator.

To execute a direct database request, perform the following steps:

1. In Answers, click Settings > Administration.

2. In the Oracle BI Presentation Service Administration screen, click Manage
Privileges
to open the the Privilege Administration screen.

3. In the Privilege Administration screen, scroll down to Answers. Note that the
Edit Direct Database Requests privilege is granted to Presentation Server
Administrators. By default, the Administrator user is a member of this group.

4. Note that the Execute Direct Database Requests privilege is not granted to

anyone.

5. Click (not permitted) to open the Change Privilege Permissions screen.

6. Click the Add button next to Presentation Server Administrators to give this
group explicit access to this privilege.

7. Click Finished to close the Change Privilege Permissions screen. Notice the
change to the privilege permissions for Execute Direct Database Requests.
