After successfully cloning an Oracle Applications E-Business Suite instance and changing "APPS" user password, connections to Discoverer fail with error:

A connection error has occurred.
- OracleBI Discoverer was unable to authenticate using the password provided. This can happen due
to an invalid password or because the password was lost while using back, forward, or refresh in your browser. Please enter the password again to continue.
