Security Integration of OBIEE 12c/Oracle Analytics Server with Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) (Doc ID 2825669.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 28, 2023

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Stack - Version 12.2 and later
Oracle Analytics Server - Version 5.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This paper provides the documented steps to integrate Oracle Analytics Server 105.x with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.x security.

These steps are only applicable for EBS Integration while accessing /analytics and /xmlpserver. This document would NOT work for accessing /dv/ui Data Visualization URL. Data Visualization ONLY supported fusion middleware based  Authentication and Authorization - DV does not support Initialization Block based Security. So the steps are not valid for Visual Analyzer/DV access.

OBIEE 12c: Does Data Visualization Support Authorization Via Initialization Blocks? (Doc ID 2130407.1)


The method described in this doc makes changes to the method of EBS security integration as documented in the Oracle BI Integrator’s guide.
If the method described in this document achieves the required Oracle Analytics Server certification status, then the main Oracle Analytics Server documentation may change to reflect the information in this document. Therefore it is important to check the publication status on this document as it may be superseded in the future by the official Oracle Analytics Server documentation.

This document is aimed at Oracle Business Intelligence professionals familiar with Oracle Analytics Server 5.x.

There are some limitations of this approach. The limitations include (but are not limited to):


This approach has been tested against the following release versions
