At first I thought it would be done through the web application only to find no edit button associated with the user. I had to go through the online repository, update the user, and commit those changes. Not really sure what all that means yet, but it's a start.
I had a crash tutorial on this last week as the person I replaced was off to start his own company. OBIEE is a vast, vast world.
Where does one go to learn OBIEE from the bottom? OTN naturally. The Oracle By Example series is excellent so that's where I started.
First up, Creating a Repository Using the Oracle Business Intelligence Administration Tool . I've made it through the Physical Mappings and the Business Mappings so far, one more section to go. I can't say I completely understand all the lingo, but I'll catch on sooner or later. I'm more concerned with the basics of support at this point.
Official Oracle Documentation
- 10.1.3.4.1 and prior
- OBIA 126.96.36.199
- OBIA 188.8.131.52
I have noticed quite a bit of traffic comes to this page so I am going to continue to update it in regards to OBIEE 11g. I'll keep the 10g stuff here as well as many of the principles are the same, I'll just point to specific posts in this section.
Sample Applications for both 10g and 11g provided by Oracle are here. Good way to learn as you get to see how others do certain tasks.
184.108.40.206 Sample App (v107) is here.
OBIEE 220.127.116.11.2 BP1 - Sample Application (V207)
- Oracle BI EE 11g – Upgrading from BI EE 10g – Repository & Web Catalog
- An Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Primer for EBS Sysadmins - Don't let the EBS part fool you. Fusion Middleware is now the underpinning of OBIEE so understanding it is key.
- OBIEE 11g - Demystifying the directory structure - Great overview of the new directory structure. I still get lost trying to figure out what is what. Doesn't help that there are multiple folders under different roots with the same name...
--> Here's my take, Fun With Folders!
