EM 12c, 13c: BI Publisher Login page is not accessible after Changing the Security Model from the Default in the BI Publisher Administration Screen (Doc ID 2035609.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 13, 2018

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 12.1.0.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After changing the Security Model in the BIP Console from "ORACLE_AS_JPS" (Oracle Fusion Middleware) to another value renders the BIP Login page inaccessible.

Since EM is tightly integrated with the EM Repository and can only access the MGMT$ view via the 'EMREPOS' JNDI connection it is imperative that you do not change the Security Model.

Here is the navigation you may have taken to break the BI Publisher integrated with EM :



Explanation:
When modifying the 'Security Model' or any other configuration changes in the restricted area of the BI Publisher Administration screens, the changes are written to the xmlp-server-config.xml, and a backup created.  The location of this file is:

1. Single-Instance OMS: ./gc_inst/user_projects/domains/GCDomain/config/bipublisher/repository/Admin/Configuration folder.

2. Multiple OMSes (Shared Storage):  Since Multiple OMSes access the same BIP Configuration and Catalog information, you can find the location of your xmlp-server-config.xml file by examining the file: ./gc_inst/user_projects/domains/GCDomain/config/bipublisher/xmlp-server-config.sml which contains a pointer to the Shared Storage Location. The file should resemble the following:


If the value of the "SECURITY_MODEL" is not "ORACLE_AS_JPS" then you most likely are experiencing this issue.
