Terminated employee’s personal reports are gone. Forever?
Let me start off with some background. We are on BI 4.0 SP06 and use Windows Active Directory for authentication. When a user is added to a specific mapped AD group there BusinessObjects account gets created.
We had a user that had a lot of reports in her Personal Folder that recently left our company. When her domain account got deleted it was obviously also removed from that specific mapped AD group and consequently her BusinessObjects account got deleted as well. Along with that her Personal Folder and BI Inbox were deleted. I believe it also deleted the schedule for any reports she had scheduled. The system still attempted to run the report, but it resulted in this error…
Object failed to run due to insufficient security privileges.
Are those reports that were in her Personal Folder anywhere to be found within the system? Or are they truly gone? If they are gone, so be it. We can deal with that if we have to.
How do I prevent this from happening again? Do I need to alias each Windows AD user to their own Enterprise user?
