OBIEE 12c: Role Inheritance Fails To Work When Authorization Is Set Via Initialization Blocks (Init Blocks) (Doc ID 2222837.1)

Last updated on APRIL 12, 2017

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 12.2.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Note: This issue is very similar to Access OBIEE fails from EBS When Both Init-Blocks and FMw Security Users Are Configured (Doc ID 2222838.1); however, in this case | scenario, we highlight that the legacy init block model is used throughout. Legacy model is not recommended and may not be supported in future versions.

Your environment is setup using the legacy security model, where users and groups are configured in the RPD using initialization blocks ( 10g legacy model).


The same issue also applies when OBIEE is integrated with EBS.
