I have active directory activated in portal (OBIEE 11g). I have portalpath for active users . If any user is not assigned to any group, it shows home page only.Instead of home page, we want to give a blank page having a text only.
I have created group session variable used in the portalpath variable
The below query is used for the init block of PORTALPATH.
select case when 'valueof(nq_session.GROUP)' is null then '/shared/UsageReports/_portal/Test'
else '/shared/Dashboard/_portal/Dashboard' end from dual
It should show test dashboard, but it shows home page only.
1. Did you actually expose the variables ROLES and PORTALPATH in an analysis to find out which values are instantiated?
2. Do you have pecific pages set as default page in the user profile of the
users you're testing.with? PORTALPATH will only work if it's set to "(Default) ...". If you want to set it for others but they have set a value themselves it will not work. That's documented. User selected values will ALWAYS win over the PORTALPATH variable!
3. Are you using the proxy functionality to test? If yes, then you want to verify the version you're runnign since in certain
18.104.22.168 versions there's a bug where the default page isn't taken into account when acting as proxy. Hence my question #1!
