online mode sees the roles and users, but of course your not allowed to make changes while online
Why? Isn't it that you don't have the privileges? (so not using an account with enough permissions)
Because online you can definitely make changes in permissions.
And it's normal that when offline you don't see the list of users/roles from weblogic as your aren't connected to weblogic (being offline), so you only see a list of known roles/users which already have security setup I guess.
sorry if I wasn't clear, its disabled under the 'User Folder' section (if online)...
in online mode, nobody can access a /users/#userid# subfolders.. managing those as the server admin has to be done offline..
Ah, yes, that one is off limits online
And as I don't have a system with users defined (just a sandbox with only weblogic) I can't have a look more in detail...
Out of curiosity: what kind of permission are you looking to define on the users personal folders? Because as they aren't supposed to be shared the fact that you can't select another user or approle could even be seen as a functionality (depending the point of view of course).
actually, you don't have to have ldap or anything special defined..
just run the servers catalog manager in offline mode, not the client tools one..
expand / users
right click a folder and go to permissions..
switch to users and click list... (it should show weblogic as a user)
I don't have a Windows install of OBIEE, but I have the same result with the 18.104.22.168.0 catalog manager client tool patched (because of the bug you linked).
No "weblogic" exists in the list, only the 3 "fake" accounts "Creator Account", "Owner Account" and "System Account".
I crossed these 3 earlier in the afternoon when using the webservices to get the security details, they seem to be 3 fake accounts which probably take a "value" based on the usage (kind of aliases of something else), but still didn't check for details to find out exactly their behaviour.
