OBIEE 11g Issues with Chrome 30


Hi All,

After long time, got some time to blogging.

Recently i experienced a issue with chrome after it got auto-upgraded to 30.

OBIEE 11g is behaving weirdly and showing some pop-ups listed below. And, not able to open report in edit mode…etc.

Cannot call method ‘replace’ of null”

Cannot read property ‘TimeZoneId’ of null“,

cannot read property ‘itemsinfos’ of null.”,

Page XX.XXX.XXX.XX:9704 description: 
ReportPageEditor.prototype.load expecting 
<saw:report>, receive <null>”

Apart from these, other issues:

you can no longer open the list of web catalog, nor are you able to select the list of  subject areas.

Dashboard prompts list is not available..etc


Cause: Content-Type’ post header is not set correctly for Chrome v30.



This is fixed in OBIEE and later versions.

Download and apply patch 16068402 for OBIEE

For OBIEE, as these version no longer have error correction support, either upgrade to OBIEE or,

For all versions of OBIEE, the work-around is to use Chrome with a version lower than 30 or another browser, such as Internet Explorer or FireFox
