When calling Oracle Reports from Oracle Forms and using Reports Parameter Form (paramform=yes), if the Reports Parameter Form is left inactive for some time, in this particular case it was 5 minutes, and then trying to submit the values from the Reports Parameter Form the following error is displayed.

REP-51018: Need database user authentication

If the inactivity time was less than 5 minutes then the report request works fine.

Reports Servlet trace file shows the following information when the issue happens.

If the report request is tested outside from Oracle Forms then the issue does not happen.
