OBIEE - Cannot Change Security Model In BI Publisher

(Doc ID 1667755.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 28, 2016

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A standalone instance for BI Publisher with security model as BI Publisher, with users created within, works fine for accessing Argus BI Publisher reports.

We followed the below steps to change the security model to OBIEE : (please see attachments with screen shots)

  1. In the BIP Administration - Security Center Security Configuration, set the security model as fusion middle ware.
  2. Set the catalog to OBIEE Presentation catalog in Server Configuration.
  3. Add userid “weblogic” and password in the Administration --> Oracle BI Presentation Services configuration
  4. Add available datasources to BI Roles (BI Consumer, BI Administrator etc).


This enables weblogic user to use BI Publisher and Argus catalog content from analytics as an embedded application.

But when logged in with weblogic, the argus reports show up blank, errors in the BI Publisher log.
