Linking to BIP reports from BIEE Analyses

Bryan found a great blog post from Fiston over on the OBIEEStuff blog. It covers the ability to link to a BIP report from a BIEE analyses report with the ability to pass parameters to it. I have doubled checked and you need to be on OBIEE to see the 'Shared Report Link' mentioned in Fiston's post when you open a BIP report from the /analytics side of the house. Enjoy!

WebCenter - BI Integration

A little off topic today but to be honest I'm tired of having to find the following document every time someone asks for it. I know what you're going to say, 'that's what bookmarks are for Tim, you eejit!' Indeed, but, I find it almost easier to either type the URL or Google what I'm looking for, strange I know but that's my brain, get over it, I have to, on a daily basis :0)

The document in question, filled my life for the first half of last week. Integrating OBIEE and WebCenter, the ability to drop BI content into your WebCenter Spaces pages with a few clicks. The WebCenter product management team had a document out there covering it but, it was missing the secret sauce to get the BI side set up. The result of some 'verified by customers' effort is here:

Its a monster PDF, with lots of pictures, cos they speak a thousand words right!

I should add, I need to update said document to state that, BI Publisher content is not currently supported in this integration. There are other ways to get BIP content into WebCenter but this, sadly, ain't one of them right now. I'm assured it's planned thou.

So, either give google a day or two to index this post or if you really want to, you can bookmark it, I won't hold it against you.

BIEE Answer Parameter Passing

A little off BIP topic today but I spent some time researching how to pass parameters between Answer reports and knocked up a document for a client this morning and thought, what the heck someone might find it useful.
If you have a source Answer request and you want to link to another Answer in another subject area and pass values to the target request, read this
