Error "User Id not found" means that the ppmjasperadmin user is not in the Jaspersoft server. This can happen due to the following:

  • The user in Clarity "ppmjasperadmin" is changed to something else
  • When the Jaspersoft content was imported, it failed and did not create "ppmjasperadmin" in Jaspersoft


Clarity 14.2 and above


  1. Login to Clarity and check inactive resources.
  2. Look for "ppmjasperadmin" and ensure userName and ResourceId is "ppmjasperadmin"
  3. Run the command admin jaspersoft syncPPMContext -userName superuser -password superuser as this will create the user. Detailed information can be found in Jaspersoft Commands in accordance with Clarity Version

Note: If you are on 14.2 then the command will not work, you need to delete the repository in Jaspersoft and reimport the content.
