  • Issues promoting Crystal Reports (CR 2013) with object security in a BI 4.1 SP7.x on unix/RHEL landscape.
  • After choosing the objects (Crystal Reports CR) and dependencies (BusinessViews BV), and choosing to promote with security and picking object security, the promote step fails with a HTTP 404 Error as shown below -

  • Based on the fiddler traces, you will see that this HTTP 404 is actually possibly a HTTP 500 error coming from the backend.
  • The end to end trace and found that the issue seems to be logged in CMC logs as follows -
