IBM i2 Analyze Security Schema

Example deployments of i2 Analyze have security schemas that allow the software to work, but are not suitable for production purposes. Before you go live, you must develop a security schema that meets the needs of your organization. An i2 Analyze security schema defines the security dimensions that exist in a deployment, and the dimension values that can be assigned to items and records. A security schema also defines the permissions that i2 Analyze users can receive.

How to add and remove facets in the Information Store

IBM i2 Analyze Security Model

Data that is stored within IBM i2 Analyze is secured on a need to know basis. The security model allows you to determine the type of access groups of users will get.

  • Security Dimensions
A security dimension is a way to categorize an i2 Analyze item, with the aim of using its categorization to determine what rights users receive. The security dimensions for any deployment of the platform are defined in the security schema for that deployment.

  • Security Levels
A security level is a description of what a user is allowed to do to an item in i2 Analyze. User group membership determines what security level a user receives for any particular item.

  • Security Permissions
In i2 Analyze, security permissions provide the link between the security dimension values that an item has, and the security levels that users receive. The platform calculates the access and grant rights of users according to the permissions of the user groups to which they belong.

IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis - iBase Connector

As part of an IBM i2 Analyze deployment, an iBase connector provides a mechanism for providing users with access to an IBM i2 iBase database. The database becomes available in the Intelligence Portal as a data source that users can select and interact with.

There are two reasons for integrating iBase with a deployment of i2 Analyze. One reason is that you already have an iBase deployment, and you want to retain your data and your data model as you upgrade or migrate to i2 Analyze. The other reason is that you already have a deployment of i2 Analyze 4.1, and you want to use iBase as a way to ingest data from other data sources.

Note: This is an online, interactive lab. You will download and follow the lab guide using the associated elab. The elab will be available for 4 hours of runtime so be sure to set aside enough time to complete the lab in one setting. You will only have access to the lab for a 5 day period from when you start the lab.
