The neo-MUD tunnel for OBIEE 11g automated RPD deployment

Ok call me a geek for writing this blog on new year's eve, I dont care :-P. I can tell you that this blog is totally worth it. 
We know that EM can be used for deployment but we had a requirement to maintain an automated log every time a deployment is done with mandatory comments from the developer and link the deployment to a backed up RPD so that we can keep a track of the changes been done to the RPD and revert back if necessary.
I developed the  Multi User DEPLOYMENT (not Development) tunnel a.k.a neo-MUD tunnel utility to meet this requirement. We will talk about the process to implement the neo-MUD tunnel in this blog.

This blog is less about a solution and more about an information.

Migrating application roles in OBIEE 11g

My last article talked about a maintenance and hassle free mechanism to implement security. The article moved the security architecture to roles created in EM. The next logical step is to move the roles from one environment to another because lets face it, manually creating roles is a lot of effort.

This blog talks about a hassle free mechanism of OBIEE security implementation with almost zero overhead.
We will first look at the data level security implementation and then extend it to object level security.
