In the latest version of the RBP Check Tool for the Online Report Designer, it will check for reports built with either the Detailed Reporting or the Advanced Reporting Data Source.

Scenario 1 (Detailed Reporting Data Source):

  • If the Report - Canvas uses a Detailed Reporting Data Source; the check will inform the user if they do NOT have permission for module or domain for which the report is built on. 

Scenario 2 (Advanced Reporting Data Source):

  • The check generates an error when a user does NOT have permissions for some fields included in the report. 
  • The check will tell the admin using the tool for which table the field belongs to so they can modify their RBP accordingly.
