REP-50125: LoginException Calling Rwwebservice Without SSO (Doc ID 2617394.1)

Last updated on APRIL 01, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Configured Oracle Reports security (not SSO), and created a new user  with RW_ADMINISTRATOR application role.
Everything works fine when using rwservlet, but when using rwwebservice it raises the following error:"REP-50125: An internal exception occurred: Security Exception."

To reproduce the issue one can follow these steps:

1. Install and configure Oracle Reports ( by following the documentation:
Out-of-the-Box reports is secured using OPSS security (rwJaznSec).

2. In Weblogic console, create a new user with a password (security realms > myrealm > Users and Groups).

3. In FMW Process Control, assign the role RW_ADMINISTRATOR to the new user created in the previous step:
 a) Navigate to "WebLogic Domain > Security > Application Roles"
 b) In "Application Stripe" select list, choose "reports" and apply the filter
 c) Select the "RW_ADMINISTRATOR" row, and click "Edit"
 d) In "Members", add the user created in step 2 user and then click "Ok"

5. Test a sample report and verify security is ok. This is an example URL: http://<host:port>/reports/rwservlet?report=sample_report.rdf&destype=cache&desformat=pdf&authid=<username/[password]>&userid=<user/pass@database>
In this step, the "rwservlet" call must be successful.

6. In FMW Process Control, test rwwebservice web service following the note: DOC ID:1306085.1 - How to Test RWWEBSERVICE in Reports 11g (auth_id should be the one created at step 4). This is an example:
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="">
   <ns1:runJob xmlns:ns1="http://oracle.reports/rwclient/">
     <arg0>report=sample_report.rdf destype=cache desformat=pdf authid=username/[password] userid=user/pass@database</arg0>

This step should raise the error:
"REP-50125: An internal exception occurred: Security Exception."


 A new installation.
