How can I see all private reports for our various staff members?

Accessing Private Reports

There is a system-defined administrator account (see Answer ID 2059: Oracle B2C Service System Administrator account). When logged in as the system administrator, you can access the private reports for all staff members who have staff accounts.

The administrator account is a special account that is not defined in the staff table and has no profile configured for it. When logged in as the system administrator, you have limited access to access configuration features and reports.

The administrator can access all reports in the application. This allows you the ability to access private  reports for staff members who have left your organization or have been disabled for some reason. This allows you the ability to edit, move, or delete these items as appropriate. This is especially useful if you have a dependency associated with custom fields or specific reports.

Private reports that are accessible only to the staff member who created them are stored in the My Reports folder. Other staff members’ My Reports folders are not displayed in the Reports explorer. However, Oracle B2C Service administrators can log in with the system-defined administrator account in order to access every account’s folders. This ensures that private reports can be edited, moved, and deleted if necessary.  Clicking a folder in the Reports explorer’s tree displays the folder’s contents in the list on the right.

For additional information, refer to the 'Reports Explorer' section in the Online Help User Guide documentation for the version your site is currently running. To access Oracle B2C Service manuals and documentation online, refer to the Documentation for Oracle B2C Service Products.

Troubleshooting Private Reports

Should you need assistance in troubleshooting issues with private reports, it's important to know that Oracle B2C Service Technical Support can query a database for some details about a private report, but cannot directly troubleshoot reports in private locations (My Reports, or any of its sub folders). If assistance is needed, the report will need to be copied to a public location (Public Reports, or any of its sub folders). It is highly recommended that the report be copied rather than moved.
