Initializing TM1 Applications with CAM - HTTP 404



While attempting to configure the Tm1 Applications initialization page and after providing CAM credentials, the below error message is displayed on screen.


Incorrect configuration.

In a particular customer scenario, the variables_TM1.xml had been edited as per pre-10.2 instructions. The file contained the tm1web urls (servername and fqdn).


Tm1 10.2 and higher

Diagnosing The Problem

- Ensure that the configuration (CAM, if applicable) has been followed correctly

Resolving The Problem

Prior to TM1 10.2, Tm1 Contributor, setup with CAM authentication, required a parameter in the tm1s.cfg called CAMPortalVariableFile=portal\variables_TM1.xml.

This file (variables_TM1.xml) is found on the BI application server under the path ..:\Program Files\ibm\cognos\c10_64\templates\ps\portal\.

The file, then needed to be edited with the TM1 Web url.

As of IBM Cognos TM1 10.2, the edition of the file is NO LONGER REQUIRED. The default variables_TM1.xml needs to stay as is. It is still required (if configured in the tm1s.cfg), but the application will be using the specified tm1web.html file, instead, to redirect the user from the BI (after being authenticated by CAM) to the tm1web server.
