The Oracle BI Mobile App Designer complements BI Mobile HD and is packaged with BI Foundation Suite and the BI Mobile option to OBIEE at no additional cost.
Follow the below steps to install Oracle BI Mobile App Designer:
- OBIEE 18.104.22.168.1 [If your version of Oracle BI EE is not 22.214.171.124.1, download Patch 16556157: OBIEE BUNDLE PATCH 126.96.36.199.1 from My Oracle Support].
- To support Oracle BI Mobile App Designer with Oracle BI Web Catalog, Apply OBIEE 188.8.131.52.1 MLR Patch 17004920.
- Download Oracle BI Mobile App Designer patch 17220944 from My Oracle Support.
Stop All OBIEE 11G services (Weblogic Admin Server, Managed Server and OPMN services)
Apply OBIEE 184.108.40.206.1 MLR Patch 17004920 using OPatch utility.
Apply OBI Mobile App designer Patch 17220944 using OPatch utility.
Deploy the OBI Mobile App Designer (MAD) manually using WebLogic configuration assistant as shown in below:
Open Command prompt window and Navigate to <MW_HOME>\Oracle_BI1\common\bin\
Run ‘config.bat’ to start the WebLogic configuration assistant tool.
On welcome screen, select ‘Extend an existing WebLogic domain ‘ and click Next.
Choose the domain to extend, for example: bifoundation_domain
Choose Extend my domain using an existing extension template and Set the Template Location to: <MW_HOME>/Oracle_BI1/common/templates/applications/oracle.bimad_template_11.1.1.jar
On Configuration summary, review the deployment details and click “Extend” button.
Upon successful configuration, you see the following screen. Click “Done” to close this window.
Great. This concludes the OBI MAD application deployment in our OBIEE 11G application. Now we need to update the Security Configurations for OBI MAD. This is mandatory step to use OBI MAD in OBIEE 11G presentation services.
Update Security Configuration for Oracle BI Mobile App Designer:
This is a Python script to update the OBIEE 11G domain (bifoundation_domain) system JAZN file (system-jazn-data.xml) with the security grants required for BI Mobile App Designer. This step is required only the first time you apply the patch.
Navigate to <MW_HOME>\Oracle_BI1\bifoundation\install and run the command: <MW_HOME>\Oracle_BI1\common\bin\wlst.cmd addMADCodeGrants.py t3://<hostname>:7001 <weblogic_Admin_Username>
For example: D:\MW\Oracle_BI1\common\bin\wlst.cmd addMADCodeGrants.py t3://shivapc:7001 weblogic
After successful execution, Start All OBIEE 11G services (Weblogic Admin, Managed servers and OPMN)
Once the services are started, Login OBIEE 11G analytics (http://hostname:9704/analytics)
Right after, you logged into OBIEE 11G, click the ‘New’ Menu. In this you will see a new application category called “Mobile Application” and you see the “Mobile App” module. Click on that to start design and developing the reports.
In next blog, I’ll explain how to develop the reports using this OBI MAD.
