    help needed on obiee12c

    ladi-Oracle

      Hi All,

       

      We need to certify OBIEE12C with our product. I got steps to deploy rpd but I cannot find the steps to deploy webcat.Does anyone have any idea on how we can deploy webcat on OBIEE12c. We currently have rpd and webcat which were created using OBIEE11g. Will same work on OBIEE 12c or do we need to upgrade them.

       

      Thanks a lot.

       

      Regards,

      Amrit

          Hi,

          For OBIEE 12c to import a RPD and webcat from your OBIEE 11g you need to use the migration utility provided.

          12c works with the BAR file, an archive containing RPD, webcat and security.

          The utility (a JAR) must be executed on your 11g environment, it will pack together into a BAR your RPD and webcat and security and then you take the file and you have commands to deploy it in your 12c environment.

           

          Have a look in the doc for the steps to migrate content from your 11g to 12c: http://docs.oracle.com/middleware/1221/core/BIMIG/GUID-D0867450-1AEF-43DE-8144-7816F7105CB1.htm

            Hi Gianni,

             

            Thank you so much for the reply.I have installed OBIEE 12c and followed the steps given in the link. While importing I am getting below error:

            I have missed some step because of which this error is coming. And before importing do we need to do some setup on 12c.

              Hi All,

               

              The import succeeded but while login into Analytics I am getting below error:

              You don't have the privilege to access this page. Please contact your system administrator.

               

              Can someone please let me know how this can be resolved.

               

              Regards,

              Amrit

                Hi,

                Did you check if your applications roles exists and if you have all the right privileges ?

                The migration with the BAR files also migrate the security, but some app roles names can be different or things like that.

                So log into EM and Console and validate everything on that side.

                  Hi Gianni,

                   

                  thanks for reply.

                   

                  Can you please tell me how can I validate privileges using EM and console.

                    Sorry to ask Amrit but ... do you know a bit of how OBIEE works?

                    Because it's about checking the approles (and which user, group, approle is member of an approle) and policies.

                    It's a critical part of the security and so if you aren't familiar with the global security concept of OBIEE it can be risky ...

                      Hi Amrit - we are in the middle of an upgrade from 11g to 12c and experience the same error. Did you manage to get past the error ? Please share details if you did.

                      We have cheked support Doc ID 2121656.1  and ruled out the environment variable issue listed there.
