Remove Security from Data Source Management

This procedure changes your data source management so that an anonymous user can access it. These steps are necessary to completely remove security from the BA Server; however, this procedure does not remove all security. Start with Remove Security by Allowing Anonymous Access if you need to remove all security.

  1. If you need to, stop the BA Server.
  2. Open /pentaho/server/biserver-ee/pentaho-solutions/system/data-access/settings.xml file with a text editor.
    1. Find this line <data-access-roles>Administrator</data-access-roles> in the file and change this text:
      Administrator to Anonymous
      
    2. Find this line <data-access-view-roles>Authenticated,Administrator</data-access-view-roles> in the file and change this text:
      Authenticated,Administrator to Anonymous
      
    3. Find this line <data-access-view-users>suzy</data-access-view-users> and change this text:
      suzy to anonymousUser
      
    4. Find this line <data-access-datasource-solution-storage>admin</data-access-datasource-solution-storage> and change this text:
      admin to anonymousUser
      
  3. Save and close the file.
  4. Restart the BA Server.
