OBIEE 12c : No AD-Roles Or Permissions Available in Visual Analyzer When Adding Data source from a file [Excel]

(Doc ID 2389287.1)

Last updated on MAY 30, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Data Visualization Desktop - Version 12.2.1.0.0 to 12.2.3.0 [Release 12g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Oracle Data Visualization Desktop, No AD-Users or AD-Roles can be found.

STEPS:

1) Create a new Data source from a file [Excel]

2) When the data source is created, Add to Project -> In the Data Sources pane (left side top), right-click the external data source and select Inspect -> Permissions

3) Observe that the Users & Roles are not visible.


Hence , the newly created data source can't be shared with all user's having the same AD-users and AD-roles that are available in OBIEE. For e.g: if user B logs on he can't see data sources uploaded by user A.
