Do you what setting is needed to avoid the message "An error has occurred: java.lang.NullPointerException " when a user clicks o nthe New->WebIntelligence Document link? They can edit an existing document that they own...they cannot create a new one via universe.

Hi,

I am not sure, if this is related to XI.

Check whether you are using JRE 1.5. This seems to be an issue (I was not able to create a new WebI report in e6.5.1. When I started using JRE1.4, I was able to create new reports).

To make sure JRE is the issue, try to create a report using HTML Report Panel instead of Java Report Panel (from options).

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Suresh

This is XIr1

JRE is ok because i can create docs using a different BO ID on the same PC.

I also have this error, but it only happens after a period of time of unactivity... something to do with the timeout.

We had the same situation and error. It was corrected by going into the Universe area of the CMC, opening each Universe folder, going to the Object Level Security tab, and setting the Everyone group to 'Inherited Security'.

I can't allow 'Inherited Security' because i need to restrict users from certain folders.

I was going through the notes on SP1 and it looks like this is addressed. I will do more testing tomorrow.

It would be nice if the bugs/known issues were listed in the Knowledge base instead of digging through the SP and HF read me files...

You can still set security permissions on the "Rights" tab of the folder. This is just the "Object Level Security" tab.

You also need VOD on the Universe connection in CMC. Set at the highest level under universe connections.

Hello.
Wherever the error is coming from, I think that you can enter a case to TechSupport.
An error has occurred: java.lang.NullPointerException error message shoud never been generated. Either BO manages the error messages because you have done something wrong or fix this if this is a bug.
This error should never been shown.

Regards

I ran into the same issue and found that by adding my group memberships to the application level fixed it:

CMC --> Home --> BusinessObjects Enterprise --> Web Intelligence
