I just installed and configured OBIEE 126.96.36.199.9 and OBIA 188.8.131.52
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: 184.108.40.206.9
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:
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'.
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.
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.+"
