Error Information:

In these possible scenarios:

  • When logging into Oracle Business Intelligence
  • While working in Oracle Business Intelligence

The user is presented with the following message:


Error 401--Unauthorized


From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:

10.4.2 401 Unauthorized

The request requires user authentication. The response MUST include a WWW-Authenticate header field (section 14.46) containing a challenge applicable to the requested source.  The client MAY repeat the request with a suitable Authorization header field (section 14.8).  If the request already included Authorization credentials, then the 401 response indicates that authorization has been refused for those credentials.  If the 401 response contains the same challenge as the prior response, and the user agent has already attempted authentication at least once, then the user SHOULD be presented the entity that was given in the response, since that entity MAY include relevant diagnostic information.  HTTP access authentication is explained in section 11.
