Basically, the BDC permissions are based on Inherited permissions concept.

1. Go to Business Catalgo permissions

2. Selcet the required Farm Admin user

3. Click on the link "Copy all permissions to descendants"

This will copy the selected users permissions down to BDC applications and entities.
