    1. Hi,

      Did you see OAMAuthnCookie in browser?

      If you see OAMAuthnCookie in browser then there must be some misconfiguration on BI SSO configuration.

    2. Hi Siva,

      We do see that the OAMauthcookie is getting generated ,Can you please let us know which configuration of BI might have an issue? Because we have validated and everything looks fine from our end.
