This is the layer of the logical business model that is accessible for the client through the structure query Language better known as the logical SQL. The presentation is the appropriate layer to set user permissions and to validate user permissions to reports.
It is important to classify the metrics from multiple perspectives such as, their frequency of use, potential performance impacts, and complexity of calculations involved. Such a classification helps drive priority of testing
User interface testing should encompass tests with multiple options in the available filter criteria. OBIEE gives enough drilldown features to verify the underlying data on the clickable components of the charts. Test cases written should be detailed enough to verify data aggregated at various layers.
. Validate the entire filters which are available on report. Example refers below report and its filter
. Example: For Performance Measure filter- Validate filter contents against report requirement and database
Local filters: Filtering the records in the report level.
Global filters: Filtering the records based on user selection in Dashboard.

Example: For example, users in a particular department can view only the subject areas that belong to their department.
Bursting the reports means distributing the reports based on the regions.
Example: If there are 4 regional reports, validate to burst the reports (based on East, West, South, North regions).
