OBIEE 12c: Unable to Assign Permissions to an Application Role (Doc ID 2443774.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 26, 2020

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 12g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


You are assigning permissions for an application role in a subfolder in the catalog.  You have:

  1. Opened the permissions window
  2. Added an Application Role
  3. Clicked on the Folder with a lock icon to assign Traverse Permissions upstream, the icon changes to folder with a green check
  4. Clicked OK

At this point nothing happens.

However this message is seen on the browser console:

saw.ajax.Connection._handleNotification: Error retrieving user/group data from Oracle BI Server's User Population API.
Odbc driver returned an error (SQLExecDirectW).
