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.

    Thanks for the document. I definitly will bookmark it.

    Just wondering, will the same technique works for a regular WebCenter Portal application or will it only work for WebCenter Spaces?

    We can also use the MBean browser for a regular WebCenter portal so if we add the connection there, will it work or do we need to integrate BI in a different way?

    Hi Yannick,

    "There are other ways to get BIP content into WebCenter"

    Could you describe or summarize the other ways to integrate BI Publisher 11g with WebCenter Spaces 11g ? I couldn't find any examples with Google or in the Oracle KBase.

    Thanks in advance.
