(Doc ID 2091484.1)

Last updated on JUNE 08, 2017

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 11.1.1.7.x to 11.1.1.9.0 [Release 11.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You can apply permissions to any folder in the catalog except one. Somehow the one folder seems to have become corrupted.

When you try to apply permissions to this folder (for example XX_ORCL_PAYROLL), you see the following error message:

'Error 500--Internal Server Error
From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1:
10.5.1 500 Internal Server Error

The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request. The problem happens in all browsers eg. Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer.
