logout link is missing in OBIEE 11g

HI,

After enabling SSO using CA Siteminder i am able to login to OBIEE11g using sso enabled url, but after logging in i dont see the logoff button at the top of OBIEE. From the EM under security i have enabled sso and added logon url and logoff url and verified the same in instanceconfig.xml but still the logoff button is not visible. Any help?

Thanks,
RM

    Check this

    Logout / Sign Out Button Missing After Integrating OBIEE With Siteminder SSO [ID 1509835.1]

    Solution

    Enter a url for 'The SSO Provider Logoff URL' by logging into Enterprise Manager - Fusion Middleware Control, clicking on Business Intelligence/coreapplication, and then clicking on the Security tab.
    The correct URL is
    http://servername:port/analytics/saw.dll?Logoff
    Note: 9704 is the default port value.

    This step properly adds the Sign Out button to the upper right hand corner of the UI.

    Update back

    Srini,

    Thanks for the reply. But when we enable the SSO by integrating it with Siteminder SSO we need to provide the SSO Provider logoff url right. But here as per your suggestion we need to define the direct url i.e hostname:portname/analytics one. What if we have a clustered environment? Even in that case we should use the direct URL ?

    I will give it a try and see how it goes.

    Thanks,

    Srini,

    i have tried the logoff URL as per your suggestion but it didnt work either. Do you have any clue on it as what could be the reason.

    SSVS,

    ya i did verify the authenticationschemas.xml it has the below values:

    <!-- After this, container managed SSO schemes are king. Note, only one may be active at any time. -->
    <SchemaKeyVariable source="serverVariable" nameInSource="REMOTE_USER" forceValue="SSO"/>
    <SchemaKeyVariable source="serverVariable" nameInSource="REMOTE_USER" forceValue="SSO-ATG"/>
    *<SchemaKeyVariable source="httpHeader" nameInSource="SM_USER" forceValue="SSO-Siteminder"/>*

    <!-- CA Siteminder -->
    <AuthenticationSchema name="SSO-Siteminder" displayName="CA Siteminder" userID="IMPERSONATE" proxyUserID="NQ_SESSION.RUNAS" options="noLogoffUI noLogonUI">
    <!-- Name of header may need to tweaked per-site. If possible, it is better to use the generic SSO scheme as it is more secure. -->
    *<RequestVariable source="httpHeader" type="auth" nameInSource="SM_USER" biVariableName="IMPERSONATE" options="required"/>*
    <!-- <RequestVariable source="serverVariable" type="auth" nameInSource="REMOTE_USER" biVariableName="REMOTE_USER_VERIFICATION" options="required bipsinternal" /> -->
    </AuthenticationSchema>

    but i dont think we can define the logoff and logonURL in here. It will be updated in instanceconfig.xml file when we update the logon and logoff url from EM under Security ->singlesignon

    <Authentication>
    <!--This Configuration setting is managed by Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control-->
    <EnabledSchemas>UidPwd,Impersonate,UidPwd-soap,Impersonate-soap,SSO-Siteminder,SSO</EnabledSchemas>
    <SchemaExtensions>
    <!--This Configuration setting is managed by Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control-->
    <Schema name="SSO" logonURL="http://web1.com/analytics/" logoffURL="http://hostname:9704/analytics/saw.dll?Logoff"/>
    </SchemaExtensions>
    </Authentication>

    I have the above values in there. Any other thoughts from you

    Thanks,
    RM

    This never worked when I tried to enable for EBS OBIEE log off to EBS.

    Refer to : http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E28271_01/bi.1111/e10543/sso.htm#autoId8.

    this was a bug with my case in OBIEE 11.1.1.6.2 BP2 - Bug 14249563 : 'SIGN OUT' OPTION DISAPPEARS IN AN OBIEE 11.1.1.6.1 ENVIRONMENT (VIA EBS)

    check Daan's post too - http://obibb.wordpress.com/2012/08/20/logout-link-disappearing-in-oracle-bi-11g-oracle-ebs-r12-integration/

    I dont know if this is any way related.

    Good Luck,
    SVS
