OBIEE 12c: Navigating to Dashboard Page Redirects to Unintended Page Tab when a user has Dashboard Pages with Restricted Access

(Doc ID 2348957.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 17, 2018

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 12.2.1.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

You have a dashboard which has multiple pages.
When users do not have access to some pages in the dashboard, clicking on a page may appear to redirect to other page.

A reproducible scenario is following:
1) Create a new dashboard.
2) Create 3 pages in the dashboard, PageA, PageB, PageC in that order.
3) In dashboard properties, remove access permissions for PageA from BI Consumer role.
4) Log in to Analytics with a user who has only BI Consumer role.
5) Open the dashboard created in Step1-3,
    Expected behavior: PageB and PageC are visible, and selectable as normal, with PageA hidden
    Actual behavior: PageB and PageC are visible, if you click on PageB, it skips back to PageC but contents for PageB is displayed.
    Behavior is even stranger if there are more than 3 pages, or more than one page with restricted access in the mix.
