          Yes, we can set session variables thru GO URL parameters, <Auth> tag is not supported for OBIEE 11g though do not try to add that tag.


          1. Go to authenticationschemas.xml file located at C:\<MW_HOME>\Oracle_BI1\bifoundation\web\display (there is 11gdocumentation about making changes to this file when integrating with some other application)


          2. Locate the comment <!-- Group for HTTP POST login --> in this file


          3. Located the <AuthenticationSchemaGroup> under this comment


          4. There would be 3 xml tags as mentioned below. These are values that we usually pass as params in Go urls. Assumed that since we add the new session variable names in <Auth> tag in 10g, this might have translated to "type=auth" in 11g.


          <RequestVariable source="url" type="auth" nameInSource="NQUser" biVariableName="UID" options="trim" />

          <RequestVariable source="url" type="auth" nameInSource="NQPassword" biVariableName="PWD" options="secure"/>

          <RequestVariable source="url" type="proxyUserAuth" nameInSource="RUNAS" biVariableName="NQ_SESSION.RUNAS" />



          5) Add the new entries along with the above entries : Save the file


          <RequestVariable source="url" type="auth" nameInSource="SETVAR" biVariableName="NQ_SESSION.TEST_VAR"/>


          6) Restart the services.


          7 ) Use the Go url in the format given below:




          Hope this helps,
