In OAS  2-node clustered environment Act-As fails with error: This functionality has not been enabled by your service administrator.


The following steps have been performed:


1) Enabled ACT-AS   OAS deprecated feature as per document:

2) Followed the process of configuring Act As similar to the one in OBIEE 12c.

1. "Defining the Association Between Proxy Users and Target Users"

2. "Creating Session Variables for Proxy Functionality"

3. "Modifying the Configuration File Settings for Proxy Functionality"

4. "Creating a Custom Message Template for Proxy Functionality"

5. "Assigning the Proxy Privilege"


3) Made sure that the name of the custom messages folder located within ‘…/bidata/components/OBIPS’ is set to 'custommessages' and restarted the services.

However, Act-As still fails with "This functionality has not been enabled by your service administrator."
