What are the Configuration Files that will be updated with the changes made in EM?

The beauty of OBIEE 11G is that the major system administration tasks can be performed using Oracle Enterprise Manager for Fusion Middleware Control (EM) application.

We can use Fusion Middleware Control (EM) to centrally manage, monitor, and configure Oracle Business Intelligence system components (for example, the Oracle BI Server, Oracle BI Presentation Services, and Oracle BI Scheduler) and some aspects of Java components. For example, you can monitor their status and start and stop them.

To log in to Fusion Middleware Control (EM), open a web browser and enter the Fusion Middleware Control URL, in the following format: http://<hostname>:<port>/em

Once you logged into EM, you can manage the OBIEE by navigating to Business Intelligence folder. The OBIEE management can be done through the following different tabs.

OBIEE-EM_tabs

These tabs consist of different set of configuration settings that we can change relevantly during our journey in application development and usage. But as an administrator, for completeness, we should know that what configuration files will be updated with the FMW EM changes.

Here the following tables contain the mapping information of the Fusion Middleware Control (EM) labels for Oracle Business Intelligence with the corresponding element names used in configuration files.

1. Scalability Tab – Mapping Between User Interface Labels and Configuration File Elements

2. Availability Tab – Mapping Between User Interface Labels and Configuration File Elements

How to bypass Presentation Server Cache in OBIEE 11G

During our development if we wanted to check the report level UI changes, sometimes we will not see the changes immidiately. This is due to Presentation Server Cache. Eventhough we disable the BI Server cache, It doesnt make any effect on presentation Server objects.

So in that situations we need to disable Presentation server cache permanently across OBI Application, To do this add the following parameters in instaceconfig.xml. (Make sure that you have taken a backup copy of instanceconfig.xml)

<ServerInstance>
———

<Cursors>
<ForceRefresh>true</ForceRefresh>
</Cursors>

——–

</ServerInstance>

Now restart the OBI Presentation server service and test the results.

Note: Keep in mind that this parameters cause Presentation Server to always bypass its cache. To be used only for testing – may have serious performance implications.

Keep smiling 🙂

Thanks,
Shiva

How to increase slider value limit in OBIEE 11.1.1.5?

By default OBIEE 11G has slider value limit of 50. But most of the cases we got to change this setting to 100 or more(at least in my case). To change the default set limit, update your instanceconfig.xml file as explained below.

1. Open Instanceconfig.xml file from the location <MW_HOME>\instances\instance1\config\OracleBIPresentationServicesComponent\coreapplication_obips1
2. Make a backup copy of this file before making any changes as you may risk not being able to start BI service
3. Add the following parameters

<Charts>
<SectionSliderDefault>5</SectionSliderDefault>
<SectionSliderLimit>100</SectionSliderLimit>
</Charts>

4. Restart all BI services either from EM or using commands
<MW_HOME>\instances\instance1\bin\opmnctl stopall
<MW_HOME>\instances\instance1\bin\opmnctl startall.

For more information refer http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E14571_01/bi.1111/e10541/prescatadmin.htm. It covers many more parameters, that may be needed to do other, additional customizations, too.

 

Thanks,
Shiva
