Confirm Oracle BI Enterprise Edition application attributes

Attributes are used to pass information from Access Gateway to the back end protected web resource using header fields. Oracle BI Enterprise Edition applications require the OAM_REMOTE_USER attribute but can take advantage of other attributes.
During this task we will confirm required attributes and add any additional attributes.

  1. The Attributes pane provides a list of attributes that will be passed into the application as header fields.
    Confirm the attributes match those required by Oracle BI Enterprise Edition.





    If required, use the Edit () icon to modify the name and other values associated with each attribute.
    Add or modify any additional required attributes. See Application attributes. for more information on attribute options.

  2. Click Next. The Policies pane appears.
  3. Leave all policies unchanged and click Done.
    See Manage application policy for more information on application policies.

Add or modify any required attributes. See Application attributes for more information on the attribute options.
