What should I enter for Server Name/Port in BI Connector UI? What does "Single Sign-on enabled" mean?

In the server name field, you should enter the URL from your OBIEE URL.
If your OBIEE URL starts with http:// and does not have a port number, then port number is typically 80.
If your OBIEE URL starts with http:// and has a port number (e.g., 9704), then use that port number (e.g., 9704).
If your OBIEE URL starts with https:// and does not have a port number, then port number is typically 443.
If your OBIEE URL starts with https:// and has a port number (e.g., 9804), then use that port number (e.g., 9804).
For example, if the OBIEE URL is http://biprod.mycompany.com:9704/analytics" then
If you are using Single Sign-on(SSO) in your organization, please check the "Single Sign-on enabled" field. BI Connector would then automatically use the correct mechanism to connect to your OBIEE environment.
the server name would "http://biprod.mycompany.com". You don't need to add "analytics".
- The port would be 9704.
If the connection is not successful, you will see the following window. Please click OK.
Verify the URL, port, user id and password and Test connection again. Even if the URL/port/userid/password are correct and you are still not able to successfully connect to OBIEE, the error could be due to network/SSO configurations such as Oracle Access Manager or WebAuth that might block all web service connections to OBIEE.
