I OBIEE 188.8.131.52.x the /analytics default login page is set system wide as http://hostname:port/analytics/saw.dll?bieehome
When you restrict a user to the privilege 'Access home page' this prevents the user from logging in since the http://hostname:port/analytics/saw.dll?bieehome 'validates' against the home page irrespect what the My Account->Starting Page
is set too.
Do you know how to change the /analytics default page (http://hostname:port/analytics/saw.dll?bieehome to http://hostname:port/analytics/saw.dll?Dashboard) internally to OBIEE?
Thanks for your reply.
Isn't this just replacing a piece of code for Home link with a custom dashboard link - i don't want users to see this home link hence revoking 'Access Home Page' privilige
In OBIEE there must be a setting so when we load http://hostname:port/analytics OBIEE knows to load the login page at http://hostname:port/analytics/saw.dll?bieehome&startPage=1 - i want to change this

As per my understanding, you want to show your Dashboard instead of Default home page for all users.
In that case, take the path of your Dashboard and put that in a Variable called PORTALPATH (this is system session variable). Before that check whether that path you took is running fine in the browser or not by simply copy and paste it on browser and hit enter. if that is working then then assign that path to above variable, and go to my account and make starting page as default. If all things fine then next time you logged in it will land to your desired dashboard instead of home page by default.
Please let me know whether it resolves your problem.
Thanks for your reply. We want to avoid setting Default in user profile. We have about 300 users, and we have turned of capability of changing user pref. from my account. My and probably 879721's requirement is to not redirect http://localhost:9704/analytics to http://localhost:9704/analytics/saw.dll?bieehome&startPage=1 and redirect it to http://localhost:9704/analytics/saw.dll?Dashboard
