Symptoms

 Login to EBS SSO’ed and Click the BIAministrator Responsibility and it login OBIEE using ICX cookie
from EBS. When Using the ICX Cookie to SSO into OBIEE from EBS 11i, the logout disappears,  

I found a note that says if you modify the instanceconfig.xml file and add this entry in that xml file, the logout button will show up again, and it does.

<!--This Configuration setting is managed by Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control--><EnabledSchemas>UidPwd,Impersonate,UidPwd-soap,Impersonate-soap,SSO-ATG,EBS-ICX</EnabledSchemas>
<!--Adding Logout Link-->
<SchemaExtensions>
<Schema name="EBS-ICX"
logonURL="https://deamsebs0013.cie.af.mil/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=OAHOMEPAGE"
logoffURL="https://epmf5infra.cie.af.mil/sso/pages/logout.jsp"/>
</SchemaExtensions>
<!--Adding Logout Link-->
</Authentication>

The problem is that sometimes not everytime,  when your restarting OPMN from either EM console or from Unix command prompt the entry in the instanceconfig.xml – resets  itself to:

<!--This Configuration setting is managed by Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control--><EnabledSchemas>UidPwd,Impersonate,UidPwd-soap,Impersonate-soap,EBS-ICX</EnabledSchemas>
<!--Adding Logout Link-->
<SchemaExtensions>
<Schema/>
</SchemaExtensions>
<!--Adding Logout Link-->
</Authentication>

And the logout button goes away again. I have to delete the malformed entry and re-enter it and then re-start the OPMN Services again to get logout button back.
