Summary

BI Admin Tool cannot connect with tnsnames

Content

I'm trying to use the latest BI Developer Tools version (12.2.1.5.0). The Admin Tool can't connect to an on-prem Oracle DB with a tnsnames alias. I have to enter the entire connection string that's in tnsnames.ora. Is that normal? I used to be able to connect with the tnsnames alias in an older version (11.1.1.7).

I've confirmed that I can connect to the database using SQLPlus.

Thanks.
