    Nullpointerexception while adding BISystemUser from Active Directory to BIsystem role in OBIEE

    2694616


      HI experts,

       

      I'm facing a problem in adding BISystemUser user from Active directory to the BISystem role in the EM. When I'm searching for a user, it was coming with principal empty in it. Probably the nullpointerexception is due to null in the principal field.

      Could any one share your ideas on how to proceed further for adding BISystemUser to BISystem role as it is required to configure the SSO in obiee with MSAD.

       

      thanks in advance.

          Can you copy the logs as well and what error you are facing.

              Hi,

               

              I found a solution for the issue, the attribute like username.attr, user.login.attr and groupname.attr which i have added in EM need to be removed when we are keeping attribute - virtualize=true. And username.attr, user.login.attr and groupname.attr attributes are not required in obiee 11.1.1.7 + versions.

              So after removing the attribute, restart admin server, managed server and system components. Then the error will be solved.

               

              thanks.

                HI,

                 

                Just an update to the above response,

                It is required to keep groupname.attr attributes in EM and without this attribute, group name cannot be mapped to any application role.

                 

                thanks
