Symptoms

You want to be able to access directly any dashboard or page and authenticate using Kerberos.  However when you enter the URL for such a page, for example:

http://<machine_name>:9704/analytics/saw.dll?dashboard&PortalPath=%2Fshared%2FRevenue%2F_portal%2FRevenue

you are directed to the OBIEE log in page.

You have set up web.xml file as follows:

<security-constraint>
   <web-resource-collection>
       <web-resource-name>BI Analytics</web-resource-name>
       <url-pattern>/</url-pattern>
   </web-resource-collection>
   <auth-constraint>
       <role-name>SSORole</role-name>
   </auth-constraint>
</security-constraint>

<security-constraint>
   <web-resource-collection>
       <web-resource-name>BI Analytics Login</web-resource-name>
       <url-pattern>/saw.dll/*</url-pattern>
   <url-pattern>/res/*</url-pattern>
   </web-resource-collection>
</security-constraint>

 

If you access the root of the application rather than trying to open a dashboard, you are authenticated and are logged into OBIEE.
