Goal


Trying to display the content of OBIEE in the WebCenter Spaces by following Oracle WebCenter Spaces & Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Configuration including Oracle BI Apps documentation. The log file shows:

Steps To Reproduce:

  1. Create a impersonator user in BI.
  2. Create ADF connection using the Mbeans in Enterprise Manager.
  3. Log In to WebCenter Spaces as a user with access to OBIEE and added a custom resource catalog
  4. Click on 'add from library' and clicked on the connection and then expanded the presentation services , it showed only one level - biserver (i.e name of the adf connection created in the 2nd step.)

The OBIEE system is SSL enabled.
