When you add a new Data Warehouse and Reporting user, if you exceed the limit in a role, the user is added as deactivated, and you need to deactivate or remove another user with that role to give a new user membership.

Note: Report authoring capabilities require Insight Plan license. You can add additional Business Author and Pro Author users by purchasing the ARAP (Additional Report Authoring Package). Contact your OnCommand Insight representative for assistance.

These reporting user roles do not affect direct database access. These reporting user roles do not impact your ability to create SQL queries using the data marts.
