Has anyone from Banner schools built in the Banner fund/org security into Finance Webfocus reports. If you have would you be willing to share. I know the tables, but the hierarchy is complicated to pull.

Contact your Ellucian rep/consultant. Banner has views that incorporate the security outside of WebFOCUS. We use it at Fordham U.

Here's a snippet:

  
There are functions built into some of the Banner views (in this example Finance AF_BUDGET_DEVELOPMENT is the view) 
that support the module specific security like Finance FOMPROF and FOASYSC which set up access to specific Fund and Orgs to specific users.
 Below is a section of the code that produces the AF_BUDGET_DEVELOPMENT view. 
In that view it runs these functions to only allow the retrieval of information that the person has been granted access to from FOMPROF and FOASYSC.

f_fund_org_security_fnc, and f_wbud_fund_org_security

AND DECODE (fobsysc_fund_org_security_ind,
'Y', f_fund_org_security_fnc (fbvbldl_coas_code,
fbvbldl_fund_code,
fbvbldl_orgn_code
),
'Y'
) = 'Y'
AND DECODE (fobsysc_wbud_ind,
'Y', fbkbudg.f_wbud_fund_org_security (fbvbldl_coas_code,
fbvbldl_fund_code,
fbvbldl_orgn_code
),
'Y'
) = 'Y'
AND fobsysc_eff_date <= fbvbldl_activation_date
AND ( fobsysc_nchg_date IS NULL
OR fobsysc_nchg_date > fbvbldl_activation_date
)
AND fobsysc_status_ind = 'A';

That's interesting. Unfornuately some of our Webfocus users log in with a generic username. Ex: username 'Budget'. So it would not identify who the individuals are.

Thanks for the information though. I did not know these views did this.
