Description:

When running reports from Clarity, an error appears.

The path node does not exist in the repository

This is due to permissions on the BO serer being incorrect.

Solution:

Delete the user from Business Objects (BO)

Run the 'Create BusinessObjects Users' job from Clarity.

This can be done manually from BO as well

Assign security CA-PPM-ReportRun-ACL to the ca-ppm-reporting user (group).

The procedure follows:

  1. Login to the BO Central Management Console as the Administrator

  2. Open the drop down box at the top left, choose Folders

  3. Open the Manage Drop Down, choose Top-Level Security > All Folders

  4. Press 'OK' button on the dialog box asking 'You have chosen to set Security for the Top-Level folder'

  5. Press the 'Add Principals' button

  6. Select 'CA-PPM-Reporting-User'

  7. Press 'Add and Assign Security' button

  8. Choose 'ca-ppm-reportRun-ACL' from the list and move to the right column
