OBI Presentation Service (Webcat) - User

Saw Object


User management for the presentation services (ie the webcat)

The “system account” is the user that is used when opening the catalog in offline mode with the catalog manager or runcat (ie local access)

After doing some user catalog manipulation, you may want to suppress the cache (Browser and Reload) otherwise you may get strange behavior.


Suppress (forgetAccount)

See runcat forgetAccount

# Make a backup dir
mkdir /backup/obiee/forgetUsers
# Backup of the home
cp -r $CAT_PATH/root/users/myuserlogin /backup/obiee/forgetUsers
# Forget the account -cmd forgetAccounts -username myuserlogin -offline $CAT_PATH > forgetmyuserlogin.log 2>&1

You have also a log file here: INSTANCE_HOME/diagnostics/logs/OracleBIPresentationServicesComponent/coreapplication_obips1/catalogmanager0.0.log


If the user has been renamed, see runcat renameAccount

runcat.cmd/ -cmd renameAccounts \
     -old <old name{;;old name}> \
     -new <new name{;;new name}> \
     -offline <path of catalog>

Example: -cmd renameAccounts \
     -old oldName 
     -new newName 
     -offline /u01/app/oracle/product/fmw/instances/instance1/bifoundation/OracleBIPresentationServicesComponent/coreapplication_obips1/catalog/myCat
