OBIEE 11g New Feature Highlight: Chart Zoom

By Arun Somayaji, Principal Consultant, Oracle Consulting

One of the new features of OBIEE 11g is Chart Zoom. Chart Zoom allows the user to zoom to a set of values while in a chart view. Chart View can be used to select a continuous set of values on either the horizontal or vertical axis and then view the chart for just those values. This allows users to select the values of interest and essentially set a context of just those values for further analysis.

To use the Chart Zoom Feature, edit the properties of a chart using the Answers Analysis Editor and check the 'Zoom and Scroll' property in the Canvas tab. As you can see from the screenshot below, the Zoom option is available along the lower left side of the chart.

The Zoom option is available in the left bottom side of the chart.

Selecting the Zoom option on the Vertical Axis which you allow you to navigate to Vertical Axis and then to Zoom In to view the revenue data in more detail.

As you can see, the Chart Zoom is a simple way to control the visualization of your data for maximum impact and effect.

Comments:

Hi, Previously we are using Hyperion IR for our reporting. In one of our requirement, we need to create a chart with time as the data (or fact table). So the chart will show 3:25 as 3 minutes and 25 seconds. Is it possible to do that using OBIEE 11g? Thanks. Regards, Poupee
