I just installed and configured OBIEE 188.8.131.52.9 and OBIA 184.108.40.206
I was trying to edit Dashboard but when i click page Options (small icon top right handside) i did found 'Edit Dashboard' further when to catalog and tried to edit Analysis & prompt a message appeared 'Access Denied'. as it shows its a privileges issues for user. But while installation i created one user 'weblogic' and this user is having all privileges i checked in console & em. so my question is how i can edit these analysis or how i can fix this issue.
OBIEE version: 220.127.116.11.9
OBIEE & OBIA O.S: windows 2008 server SP2

1.Stop the Presentation Server.
2.Backup the instanceconfig.xml file at [middleware_home]/instances/instance1/config/OracleBIPresentationServicesComponent/coreapplication_obips1/instanceconfig.xml
3.Under the 'Catalog' section, add the 'Recover' tag. For Example:
4.Start the Presentation Server. It will perform a recovery and then after some time shutdown.
5.Remove the tag.
6.Start the Presentation Server again
Hope this helps. Let us know if you still have issues.
Which user are you trying to login and edit this reports as , does this user have BIAdministrator or BIAuthor role assigned .?
Open catalog manager as weblogic user and navigate to the folder where you are getting access denied.
Right click > Permissions > which roles have No Access here .?
Let us know.
Hope this helps. ! Mark if it does
I am using 'weblogic' and this user is having BIAdministrator, BIAuthor and Administrator roles. weblogic user is having Admin privileged
When i browse catalog "Permissions" tab is disable 'un-clickable'.
When you changed the denied you need to apply to sub folders and items within these sub folders.
Go to catalog manager 》 login as weblogic user 》 right click on the folder you cannot see permissions to 》 properties and set weblogic as the owner apply recursively.
Now right click and change your permissions to whatever roles you want to give access to.
Mark if helps.
Are you trying from analytics front end or catalog manager .?
If you want to try from front end then choose Catalog (right next to the Home option) > the default is to show the user view select the drop down box and change to Admin view > continue to navigate to the specific directory (or dashboard) that you would like to administer and choose more. You will see a number of options including Properties and Permissions.
Then make set weblogic as owner of this apply recursively. Now you should get permissions enabled.
let me knw. Mark if helps.
Case was same but at step (4) permission icon was disabled for weblogic user in my case so i was not able to open permission windows and apply permission to folders and sub folders .
+"4 . You should already see BI Administrator Role with Full Control permissions.+
+Select 'Apply permissions to sub-folders' and 'Apply permissions to items within folder'. Click Ok.+"
