    Essbase connection error (EssListAliases)

    Kirill Y

      Hello,

      Trying to connect to Hyperion database (Oracle Essbase), initial connection is ok, I chose Application, then Database, and on this step receive an error - Essbase database error -1: The call to the function EssListAliases failed.

      What could be the reason? May it be security issue?

          We've seen this issue couple months back but could not reproduce locally and support case went dark. Investigation leaned towards a configuration issue on the database side (unknown which one).

           

          Are you able to connect with an admin-like account?

          As you probably Google's already: This function requires the caller to have at least read access (ESS_PRIV_READ) to the database, and to have selected it as the active database using EssSetActive().
