11g E-Business Suite LogoffURL In Instanceconfig.xml Gets Removed After Restart Of BIEE Services (Doc ID 1494994.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2013

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.6.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Using E-Business Suite (EBS) integrated security, users would like to navigate back to EBS homepage when logged out from OBIEE.

<Authentication>
<EnabledSchemas>UidPwd,Impersonate,UidPwd-soap,Impersonate-soap,EBS-ICX</EnabledSchemas>
<SchemaExtensions>
<Schema name="EBS-ICX" logonURL="http://servername.com:8052/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE" logoffURL="http://severname.com:8052/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE"/>
</SchemaExtensions>
</Authentication>

This works once changed manually, but again manual changes are wiped out upon BI system restart.


<SchemaExtensions>
<!--This Configuration setting is managed by Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control-->
<Schema logonURL="http://servername.com:8052/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE" logoffURL="http://servername.com:8052/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE"/>
</SchemaExtensions>


Because the SchemaExtension is not named with EBS-ICX, it did not work.

The working version is as follows. The name="EBS-ICX" attribute is needed.

<Schema name="EBS-ICX" logonURL="http://servername.com:8052/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE" logoffURL="http://servername.com:8052/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE"/>

Restarting BI does not remove the non-working, incorrect SchemaExtensions. Instead the incorrect update is left in the file.

Enabling SSO in EM and setting the logon/logoff URLs does not update the instanceconfig.xml file. However, the instanceconfig.xml file has a modified date of when the enable SSO changes were activated.  An attempt by the system to update the file was made, but did not complete as there are no actual updates.

This is the only SSO related entry in the file:

<EnabledSchemas>UidPwd,Impersonate,UidPwd-soap,Impersonate-soap</EnabledSchemas>

The SSO enable update did not go in.

Do see the EM page as showing SSO enabled and a logon/logoff URL entries are there.
