Oracle BI EE – New Release – Essbase Support is now available

Posted by Venkatakrishnan J on January 7, 2008

Thanks to Bryan for this info. Somehow Bryan seems to be the first in finding out these new releases :-). Thanks Bryan. The new features that have been added in this release are

1. The long awaited Hyperion Essbase support as a Data Source using XMLA.
2. Listener config for IIS. This is for enabling support for routing BIP and BI Office requests to OC4J directly from IIS (one cannot configure BIP and BI for Office in IIS).

One can download the documentation here and the software here

In addition to that 7.9.4 version of BI Applications has also been released.

Oracle BI EE – Rename My Dashboard

Posted by Venkatakrishnan J on January 7, 2008

Lets look at another simple question today. How do we rename “My Dashboard” for all the users to say “Personal Dashboard”. In order to do this all we need to do is to make a small change to an XML message. The list of steps are given below

1.   Go to {OracleBI}\web\msgdb\l_en\messages. You would see a file called as uimessages.xml.

2.   Copy this file to {OracleBIData}\web\msgdb\l_en\customMessages. If you do not have l_en\customMessages folder then create them. Remember this is a language specific message. Hence we cannot copy this directly to {OracleBIData}\web\msgdb\customMessages as we had done earlier.

3.   Search for the message kmsgUIMyPortal. This is the message that handles the display property of your dashboard. Change it to say Personal Dashboard.



4.   Restart presentation services. Now you would find that the display of My Dashboard would have changed to Personal Dashboard.


Very simple but can be useful in some situations.
