Control who can ‘edit column formulas’

If you want to restrict certain users from customizing columns beyond the one’s defined in the RPD, now you can do this by restricting access to this functionality.

This may be a good idea to prevent users from making changes to the basic and calculated fact items.

Go to OBIEE Administration > Manage Privileges > Answers > Edit Column Formulas and customize access.

If you have denied this to certain users’/groups, they will not see the ‘Edit formula’ option when they right click on a column in Answers.
