  3. click on Start Now button
  4. See the error message: You are not authorized to execute report XYZ.

Cause

When you send a report via broadcast, the system performs an authorization check, so it checks if the report and the user are assigned to the same work center. The issue can occur in the following cases:

  • There is no Work Center assigned to the report XYZ, it means that no business user has access to it.
  • The report is assigned, but the recipient (if the broadcast is user specific) or the broadcast creator (if the broadcast is not user specific) have no access to the report.

Resolution

  1. Go to Business Analytics work center and Design Reports view
  2. Show All and Find the report XYZ
  3. Click on Assign button
  4. Check the checkbox for the work centers that you want to have assigned to this report.
  5. If your broadcast is user specific, ensure that the recipients are also assigned to at least one of the selected work center views.
  6. If your broadcast is not user specific, ensure that the creator of the broadcast is assigned to at least one of the selected work center views.
