OBIEE Editing system wide defaults

Setting a system wide default can be very handy but also completely F@#$K up your system. For instance changes to CSS files don't seem to work. Most catalog administrators forget to retract this privileges until it's to late.


Anyway here is how you can undo the damage.

As always be careful when editing directly into the catalog XML.. Backup!

Open the catalog in a off line mode:


Navigate to /system/metadata


Press Edit XML


Press again Edit


Carefully Delete edit the XML  !


Press save, close catalog manager, restart presentation service.

Till Next Time

I know this is an old post, but can you explain how this is done in OBI 11g? Also, when you say "Carefully Delete edit the XML" do you mean to modify what's in there or to remove everything in the XML box? Thank you.
