    Hi Shiv,
    Thanks for your posts. I actually had a design question for you. One of my reports (with 20 cols) consists of multiple rows with repeated customer names (about 100 distinct customer names and approx total 5000 rows). We wanted to automatically filter out the report on customer names and send the filtered reports to the respective customers. So these 100 customers will receive their own 50 rows. We were wondering how we should go about doing this. We thought of maybe using a) iBots or b) GO URL with dummy dashboard. I was wondering if you have had experience tackling this issue and iterate some high level design steps that will be required.

      Hey shiv,
      This functionality can be achieved by BI Publisher Bursting concept.

    HI Shiva,

    I have read your blogs and I have a quick question. As I have impplemented SSO and I am letting the users into BI via company portal , I don’t want the users to have the “Sign out” button as it redirects you back to login page of BI. Is there a way to disable this or redirecting the ” Sign out” back to the portal page.

    Hi Shiva,
    Thanks for this very interesting post.
    I am not able to find this config tag anywhere in the official documentation, where did you get it ? 🙂 I can only find the following:


    Unfortunately twe cannot set the values to -1 like in obiee10g, the Presentation server cannot restart anymore.
    Were you able to test this new config tag.

    Best regards
