Symptoms

Currently have single security realm set up in OBIEE , with default authenticator set to REQUIRED.

There are approximately 300 users set up in Weblogic with login access to OBI application (using the default authenticator).

However, it seems this is not working correctly, as users with invalid credentials (incorrect user name or password) are still able to login to OBIEE application, on http://:9704/analytics or http://:7777/analytics.

Also after login their OBI roles/privileges are not being loaded and cannot actually use the application correctly to view or run any reports.

While trying to access the Weblogic console with invalid admin user id / password,it is returning Authentication Denied message which is as expected.
