Testing data security
Actuate BIRT Designer supports the simulation of viewing reports with data security. You can test data security in a report without having to publish the report to iServer, log in with different user credentials, run the report and verify its output.
To test data security from the perspective of a user designing a dashboard in BIRT 360 or a report in BIRT Studio, you need to run tests on the iServer. The testing procedure entails the following steps:
Launching the dashboard design tool or BIRT Studio, and using the data object as a source of data for the dashboard or report.
How to test data security in a report in Actuate BIRT Designer
When you finish building the report, choose RunView Report with Data Security, and select the output format in which to view the report.
In Run Report with Data Security Enabled, shown in Figure 23-28, type a security ID specified in an ACL in the data object. For example:
Manager: Office 4
Figure 23-28  
Choose OK.
The report runs and displays only the content that the specified security ID can view.
