Oracle BI EE 10.1.3.3 – Nesting Folders in Presentation Layer and Answers
Posted by Venkatakrishnan J on January 31, 2008
I just saw another question pop up in the forum today with regard to nesting of folders in BI EE. This is where i believe BI EE documentation has to be ramped up a bit. I thought i would blog about it since it can cause confusion amongst users who are upgrading from Siebel 7.8 or lower to BI EE. In the earlier releases, the best practice to nest the folders was to add “-” to the front of a folder name. But the best practice has changed in the recent releases. Look at the screenshot below.
Our aim is to nest Geography Folder under Channels. In order to do that, open the repository and double click on the Geography Folder. Add “->” to the description. This will automatically nest the 2 folders. Remember ordering of the folders are very important for nesting to work properly. Now save it and reload the server metadata. Now you should see that the Geography Folder would have been nested under Channels.
