184.108.40.206 is out of support and you won't be able to get the Administration Tools anymore - maybe through raising a Service Request.
That said the Catalog Manager is nothing but a GUI on top of the runcat.sh/.cmd and you can do everything via command line as well.
I take it you are referring to this? https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E63231_01/doc/BIASA/GUID-7C5492C6-CB1A-417B-B7DA-1C9FA00B38F1.htm#BIASA24677
So just run "runcat.cmd//runcat.sh -help" to get a list of all commands.
Then run "runcat.cmd//runcat.sh report -help" to get the detailed description of how to use the "report" command in detail.
Thanks for the quick response Christian. Yes that is what I am referring to.
I have been running this script against the OBIEE 220.127.116.11 runcat.sh as shown below, I gave it two child types "Dashboard Page:analysis" and it seems to returns just one set of child fields. I went to read the help as you suggested and I am realizing that it only does the analysis and dashboard as child types. How do I get the dashboard page in that case? Because in the GUI, dashboard page does not have any child types.
sh $RUNCAT_PATH/runcat.sh -cmd report -offline $CATALOG_PATH/$CATALOG_NAME -forceOutputFile $HOME_PATH/webCat_Dashboard_text.txt -delimiter \",\" -distinct -type "Dashboard" -fields "Owner:Folder:Name:Path" -childrenType "Dashboard Page:Analysis" -childrenFields "Name:Path" > $HOME_PATH/webCat_Dashboard_text.log

You should be able to use the 18.104.22.168 catalog manager. https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E63231_01/doc/BIASA/GUID-7C5492C6-CB1A-417B-B7DA-1C9FA00B38F1.htm#BIASA24677
Try this: https://edelivery.oracle.com
Then, search for 'Oracle Business Intelligence Developer Client Tool 22.214.171.124.0'
Thanks a lot Charles M. It works. Earlier I had tried this using OBIEE 126.96.36.199.14500 and found that it did not have the same GUI, apparently the catalog has been updated to what it is now in the update from 188.8.131.52.0 to 184.108.40.206.1.
I will figure out how to use the runcat.sh to automate this report generation.
You're welcome. Glad it is working for you!

Interesting ... good catch on that version number!
Also, one more thing about these files. When I did this I got an error during the data lineage ETL (I'll see if I can dig up the specific error message). But, basically, it was expecting different names for these files.
I was using OBIA 126.96.36.199 [OBIEE 188.8.131.52.3], so this may/may not happen to you ...
Save the file as webCat_dashboard_text.txt in a local folderI believe this needs to be named ‘WebCat_dashboard_text.txt’ (note the capital letter ‘W’)
