Symptoms

You have installed OBIEE 11.1.1.7.140114 and configured it to use MapViewer.

But when you try to manage the maps, for example, new layers, maps or background images, you get the following error in the MapViewer log file:

SEVERE: Message:MAPVIEWER-00001: No 'xml_request' parameter found in the request.

This only happens when you use Internet Explorer 10 or 11.  With earlier versions of it, or with Chrome or Firefox as the browser, you do not have a problem.
