OBIEE 11.1.1 - How to use OBIEE Impersonate parameter for quick checks

If you quickly need to check a user permission issue, you can use the Impersonate parameter on the url. However, you have to issue two requests to get a report, you cannot do this in a single url:

Impersonation is "atomic" with authentication. It's not a "request" level parameter. You have to authenticate in "impersonated mode":

http://server:7001/analytics/saw.dll?Logon&NQUser=YourAdministrator&NQPassword=Admin123&Impersonate=TheUserToImpersonate

Then

http://server:7001/analytics/saw.dll?Go&Path=%2fshared%2ftests%2ftest1&Options=rmf&Action=print

Also, you need to make sure that the user "YourAdministrator" has the right permissions in 11g: oracle.bi.server.impersonateUser and possibly oracle.bi.server.queryUserPopulation
