    Default User Access for Auditing Purposes


    For IT Governance auditing purposes we need to report users, their roles and what the are able to access in their roles on our BI platform. We have set up our system to use a DB for storing user data. Apart from sitting with the user console and going through the users one by one, would any one be able to tell me of a way to report this kind of information? I thought I might be able to do so with SQL queries, but I was not able to get very far doing so.

    Also, there are two plugins in the marketplace (at least for Pentaho 6.1) Pentaho CE Audit and Alfresco Audit Analysis and Reporting, maybe you can take a look at them and see if you can get something useful, I've installed Pentaho CE Audit in my development enviroment and taken a look at it, but haven't followed up, our needs for tracking usage of Pentaho aren't a priority, but I keep it in mind for future testing.
