EM12c: LDAP aliased users in Enterprise Manager 12.1.0.4 Cloud Control cannot Access Targets for BI Publisher Reports (Doc ID 1946121.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 01, 2015

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 12.1.0.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

EM is configured with LDAP, and uses LDAP aliased users, which is a new feature for EM 12.1.0.3:
 
 LDAP User: 01234567
 mapped User: John,Smith
 
This user can log in to EM as 'John,Smith' and sees all appropriate targets for that user.
 
However, this same user must log in to BI Publisher as '01234567' for successful access.
 
However, when logged in to BIP as '01234567', when reports are run, the user does not have access to any targets in EM, due to the context being set to '01234567'.

The context must be instead set to 'John,Smith' for access to targets for the reports.
