Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 11.1.1.7.x to 11.1.1.7.x [Release 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Once successfully authenticated using OID authenticator, the return username values which goes into the user variable is different for XMLPSERVER url compared to ANALYTICS URL.

In the xmlpserver URL the authenticated username is always in lowercase irrespective of how entered during the logon. screen.
What this means is during the SQLGroupProvider authorization to get the group details it is not finding an entry in the table.
When adding an entry with all lower case username the XMLPSERVER url shows the correct groups.
Using ANALYTICS URL it is keeping the username how entered to get the group information. 

For example: If entering everything uppercase then it passes that value to the groups table to get the group info.
