Getting exception: Failed to connect to database - ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied when defining private connections to database from Oracle discover viewer/plus. Same was working fine few days back. checked all configurations, OS, DB, Network, nothing has changed recently.

Moreover authentication succeeds from SQL Developer with same user id/password.

Can someone plz advise how to fix this issue.

    Premier support for Discoverer ended in June 2014, see Note 1634827.1.  It is strongly recommended to move to the terminal release of Discoverer,
    Discoverer does not do any authentication itself, other than verify the User entered has been given privilege to Discoverer.  Invalid username/password is an error returned from the Database. What changes have been made to the Database?
