2. Upload the zip file with the patch p28609078 , unzip it and change directory to 28609078
In this directory, you can find the readme.txt, where all steps are described.
You have to check that OPatch version to be 126.96.36.199.2 or higher.
3. As pre-patch step you have to stop the running servers from the admin console of the WebLogic. Log to the WebLogic Administration Console and stop the managed server and AdminServer. http://IP.Address:Port/console
4. After all of the above is checked and prepared, we can proceed with applying the patch:

Now we can log in to the Administration Console http://IP.Address:Port/console and start from there Managed Node. After starting Managed Server we can see the below error in the log file of bipublisher.log which is located here:
This error is related to missing permissions in System Policies. You can accesshttp://IP.Address:Port/xmlpserver but you are not able to open reports. In order to fix this issue, you have to log in to the Enterprise Manager: http://IP.Address:Port/em Right click on the domain which in our case is bifoundation_domain -> Security -> System Policies
On type choose Codebase, Name -> Includes -> bipublisher -> search. Then click on create or create like from one of the existing and add:
When you mark the file that just created below you will find the window below with Permission for Codebase. For all of the Resource Names, the Permission Actions should be with * for all. Only the last one can be set to read as it is shown on the above picture. You can make that changes when click on the codebase that you have just added and click on edit.
When the changes are applied you can have problems with accessing http://IP.Address:Port/xmlpserver/servlet/catalog or http://IP.Address:Port/xmlpserver/servlet/admin
The problem might be related with browser caching, so you have to clear your browser cached data and try to open it again. The issue will be fixed.
I can give you another hint if you cannot log in or access xmlpserver is to remove tmp anc cache folders from the OS which are located here:
