When OAS is initially installed, the OAS Fusion Middleware security model is configured by default.
In this configuration, the weblogic user will always be available, with the password that was chosen during OAS configuration.
For some reason this weblogic user unable to access OAS console due to any user mistakes while performing any changes to OAS configuration, and/or no user has the required permissions to access OAS console or Administration link (and subsequent Administration screens), then there is no way to resolve issues using the OAS user interface and manual edits to XML configuration files would be required.

Given this, it is strongly recommended to enable the internal Superuser during these initial configuration steps.
This special Superuser does not rely on any underlying OAS security model, but instead utilizes the simpler file-based security model that is built-in to OAS.

This document helps us in configuring local Super user in Oracle Analytics Server.
