How to reset forgotten OBIEE 10G RPD password

How to reset forgotten OBIEE 10G RPD password


for 10g:

  1. Open NQSConfig.INI file
  2. Go to Security part and find AUTHENTICATION_TYPE = BYPASS_NQS;
  3. Uncomment (remove #) the above statement.
  4. Stop the BI Server service
  5. Close Administration Tool, if opened. (Then only the changes are affecting to the Administration Tool)
  6. Open Administration Tool, then rpd which needs password reset, in offline mode
  7. Give any password, it accepts.
  8. Now go to Manage > Security.
  9. From here it’s the normal process how you change password.
  10. Save the changes to rpd
  11. Revert back the changes in NQSConfig.INI
  12. Start BI Server and open rpd with new password.

The default Authentication type for OBIEE is NQS but when we uncomment AUTHENTICATION_TYPE=BYPASS_NQS by removing the # symbol,it bypasses the default authentication and enables the user to open the RPD without any password.It can also be used for resetting the password of the RPD then Restart the BI services.
