Monday Jul 16, 2012 BP1 - the "Chart B Gone" update?

If you have recently applied the OBIEE BP1 update and were using customized skins or folders, you may have found that your charts / graphs do not work any more after the upgrade.

The reason behind this is, that the upgrade process does not touch the customized folders and skins.

Getting the charts and graphs back into working condition should be fairly simple - just copy the necessary files into your customized folders and you should be nearly set and fixed.

Which ones are there and where to put them?

Find out more in our  KM Doc "OBIEE 11g: Problems Displaying Charts / Graphs after Application of BP1 when Using Customized Skins or Folders (Doc ID 1474605.1)"

Still does not work - check if you cleared your browser cache to make them reload ;)


This blog talks about the latest news and upcoming events regarding Oracle EPM abd BI.
