Last updated on JUNE 13, 2018
Applies to:Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 220.127.116.11.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
After configuring MS Active Directory authentication provider in OBIEE 12c environment using the precise same settings as in 11g environment, under "My Account" in Analytics the user ID and Display Name are correctly shown.
However, When using "Permissions" dialog to modify privileges for users, the below difference is observed.
User Search could be done with both user IDs and Display Names
Search succeeds only when searched with the exact User ID.
Similar behavior is observed when searching for users in the recipients tab of agents.
Upgrade from OBIEE 11g to 12c with Active Directory as authentication provider.
