      Do you mean the BI Applications 11g plug and play mentioned in the What's New Guide?

      If so, I don't see anywhere from which to download it either. I suggest clicking on the Contact Us link at the very bottom of the Sample App download page and asking the question there.

      I have just noticed that there is a database expiration date for some users which prevents from using the VM. I know how to solve it in 11g but not in 12c so any advise is welcome.

      Regards, Diego

      the OBIEE Sample App V406 documentation says that there is a BI Applications 11g plug and play available in the OTN portal as add-on for the VM, but I cannot find it anywhere. Could you provide a URL to download and install this package, please?

      Is it possible to include the TBC Samples from Essbase Studio or Samples from Essbase in the Sample v406? If so, how can I perform?
