BI Web service security client - authentication operations for 11.1.1.6 and 11.1.1.7.x

This wlst/python script connects to bi security web service to authenticate a user specified in the "ObieeWebServiceClient.properties" file. In 11.1.1.7, this calls: getAuthenticatedUserWithLanguageAndProperties operation of the /bisecurity/service web service.

In 11.1.1.6, this calls authenticate operation of the /bimiddleware/security/service web service.

This returns as part of the xml response the user unique identifier (guid) and other permissions/roles for the user. This is useful when debugging an issue with OBIEE security.

The script has to be run with %ORACLE_HOME%\oracle_common\common\bin\wlst.cmd (sh)

Script is available there: https://blogs.oracle.com/pa/resource/ObieeWebServiceSecurityClient.zip
