    Issues with OBIEE 11.1.1.6.2 BP1 Installation

    872653
      Hi,

      I have installed 11.1.1.6 and then applied the patch 11.1.1.6.2 BP1. Analytics is working fine but I have got certain issues with this version. The issues that I mentioned below were working fine with 11.1.1.5.0 version.

      1. Dashboard Prompts Showing NULL value. Found solution from the follwoing link

      OBIEE 11.1.1.6 - prompts showing incorrect NULL values

      2. Cannot change the User's default language. Getting the follwoing error.
      Exception occured when saving user preferences to catalog access denied for user to path /users/weblogic/_prefs/userprefsxmlstore
      3. Cannot access to BI Publisher, getting the following error. I am logging in with weblogic user.

      Compilation of JSP File '/deny.jsp' failed:

          Hi User,

          Perform the below steps for issue # 2

          1. Open the web catalog in offline mode.

          2. Navigate to /users/<username> folder.

          3. Right click on _pref folder, and select permissions.

          4. From the drop-down list select users and click on the List button.

          5. Now, you can see all the users with access to this folder.

          6. Grant your user FULL CONTROL on this folder and apply recursively to all files under this folder (click on Apply Recursively check box).

          8. Restart The OBIEE Presentation Server.

          Regards,
          Dpka

            Apologies for reviving, but I am getting exactly the same error as error #3 on the original post and cannot figure out why. This used to work fine.

             

            This error appears when I try to create a new bipublisher report. Anyone have any ideas?

             

            Thanks

              We faced the same issue. You need to give explicit permissions to the user to Run Publisher Report, Schedule Publisher Report and View Publisher Output. I'm assuming you refreshed GUIDs.
