Is this right after installation or have you made any changes to the Privileges in Answers?
Check here: Administration -> Manage Privileges -> Home and Header section -> Access Catalog UI
See if the user you are trying to log in with has that privilege.
Report back with more details as to what steps you took after installing.
Please award points if helpful/correct.
The problem seems to be with the permissions.
Please open the web catalog through the catalog manager.
Expand the shared folder and select the folder containing the reports.
Right click and select "Permissions". See if the authenticated user has read permissions to the objects.
Let me please rephrase.
If i understand your problem correctly, you are unable to see the catalog when logged in to the analtyics URL.
I am suggesting you to open the catalog through the CATALOG MANAGER.
You should be able to see the folders and reports in this if there exists any reports.
Please open the catalog using catalog manager.(NOT THE ANALYTICS URL)
There is something called as catalog manager and you will find it in the windows under:
All programs>Oracle Business Intelligence >Catalog Manager.
We have been trying to convey this from the beginning !
Hope this helps !
1. First you have to check wether catalog is present or not as mention below path.
Go to localDrive:C:\OBIEE11G\instances\instance1\config\OracleBIPresentationServicesComponent\coreapplication_obips1
2. Please cross check instanceconfig file as mention correct catalog name or not?
Open your instanceconfig.xml file
Find <CatalogPath> and </CatalogPath> tags
Hope this help's
