Thread: Unable to Access Repository Security Tab

  1. #1

    Default Unable to Access Repository Security Tab

    I am having a weird issue that no one (including Pentaho Support) has been able to figure out, so I wanted to present it to the community to see if there were any suggestions, or possibly other people having the issue.


    I am an administrator (full access to everything) in all 3 Enterprise Repositories that we currently have setup, each repository is on a separate sever. I am able to explore the repository without issue and when exploring, I am able to access all tabs with the exception of the Security tab. When I attempt to access the security tab, I am receiving the attached error. Unfortunately, Spoon will not allow me to copy the error, so I had to take a screen shot.

    We have another administrator who is able to access the security tab in the repository explorer on all three repositories without issue.

    I have tried using several different user accounts and I get the same result, so it doesn't appear to be an account issue (just for good measure, we have deleted all the accounts I have tried and created new ones).

    If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

    Forgot that I did type out the error. Since I did type it out, there is a possibility that there are typos.

    Default Use JRE6

    I also had this problem while running Java JRE 1.7... It works fine now after I uninstalled JRE 1.7 and installed JRE 1.6

    Thank you Eric.

    If anyone in the future has this issue, I can confirm that it was something in JRE 7 that was causing the problem. I uninstalled 7 and set 6 back up and I am no longer having any issues.
