Link from OBI report/OBI Answers to other application

Hi,
We want to add a link from the OBI report / OBI Answers to our application. Is there a way to create a link on the values displayed and pass values as parameter on that link?
Thanks.

Hello,
You can create a hyperlink within a column formula in Answers. You can use Go Url to pass multiple parameters as well. Check out the OBIEE presentation Services Administration Guide (Chapter 11 I believe).
We have created dynamic hyperlinks in BI report that invokes an Apex page as well.
Hopefully the following link will help.
Dyanmic display of the Image Link URL
Also search the forum.
Hope this helps. Award points if helpful.

  • Deactivate a link from a report

    Is it possible to deactivate a link from a report? Here is the problem I am facing. I have a database that will be used by 6 people and I am using a report to display records to be worked. So, when one user clicks on a record to make edits, I want to ensure that the other 5 users can't select the same record. I am trying to keep users from doing duplicate work and having an error message given to the user who doesn't save the record first. I didn't know if it was possible to do a conditional link by checking the session to see if the record is currently called up? Any help would be appreciated.

    Simplistically:
    When you "pull up" your record to edit, you can write a onload process to set a flag on that record with the user/timestamp to indicate that the record is locked. When the record is saved back to the database, have the save process clear this flag.
    Of course, in a real-world situation, many other factors have to be considered, as Scott was alluding to...
    What happens if User pulls up the record and his browser crashes, he leaves the page without saving or goes for lunch or ...? No other user will be able to edit that record. This is generally considered a "non scalable" design, but if it works for you, go ahead!

  • Can I link from Interactive report Page 1 to Master Detail page 2?

    Hi folks-
    I know how to create a Page as an Interactive Report; it creates 2 pages automatically (primary page with the great interactive bar) and a 2nd page that's a single record.
    I know how to create a Page as Master Detail, whereby I get a tabular list without the super interactive bar, and I can select a record, and get transported to a nice page with 2 regions (master on top, detail on bottom).
    I want to have the First page from the Interactive Report, select the record, and go to the 2nd page of a MasterDetail.
    Do I create the Interactive Report, and customize the 2nd page, to add a region?
    Or, do I create both page types, and redirect from the 1st page of the Interactive Report to the DML Form from the MD report? I tried that, re-assigning the link from the Interactive Report to be a Link to Custom Target, and specify the page # of the Master-Detail page. And it is taking me to the right page, but the data from the selected row is not coming with me, and the detail in the bottom region is not appearing at all.
    Can someone please give me a nudge as to the sequence I should be doing?
    (As you can tell, I'm new to Apex.... I'm trying to use it to create a prototype or proof-of-concept for a database driven web application)
    Thank you
    Marion

    Yes, I tried that after I wrote to you - and it's fine, but not what I'm after; it's only based on 1 table and I'm working with 2 tables.
    Perhaps I can explain in better.
    I want one page as an interactive tabular report (of the master records)
    I want to select a row, and transfer to a page that has the corresponding row on top (as a form), and a tabular region below of records from a related detail table.
    ie, I want page 1 from the Interactive Report, and page 2 of the Master Detail report.
    OK - I just took the form page, and added a region below in a tabular report. And I'm getting the data, but I'm getting all the records (not just the ones associated with the single record on top. I figure I need to edit the Region Definition->Source (to specify that the id numbers need to match), but the code is not editable.....
    So I am in Structured Query Attributes, and I've Modified the Join Conditions - but I still get all the detail records in the bottom region. I''m trying to add in the ( + ) qualifier, but it doesn't affect anything...
    I'm soo close to what i'm trying to do!
    Thank you for your continued patience and assistance
    Marion
    here's the Source I have for the region..... (I'm including the excess ID columns just for learning purposes)
    SELECT
    "PHONENUMBERS"."PHONE_ENTITY_ID" "PHONE_ENTITY_ID",
    "ENTITIES"."ENTITY_ID" "ENTITY_ID",
    "ENTITIES"."FIRSTNAME" "FIRSTNAME",
    "ENTITIES"."LASTNAME" "LASTNAME",
    "ENTITIES"."COMPANY" "COMPANY",
    "PHONENUMBERS"."PHONE_ID" "PHONE_ID",
    "PHONENUMBERS"."PHONETYPE" "PHONETYPE",
    "PHONENUMBERS"."PHONENUMBER" "PHONENUMBER",
    "PHONENUMBERS"."PHONECOMMENT" "PHONECOMMENT"

    "PHONENUMBERS",
    "ENTITIES"

  • Link from SSRS Report to a Project Gantt, Focusing on a Task

    Hi,
    We are using Server 2010 SP 2 (and considering moving to 2013).
    We have an SSRS grid report in which each row relates to a task in a project on the server.
    We would like to add to each row in the report a link that will open the project and focus on the relevant task. The project can be opened either in Professional, Project Center or Project Site (any will
    satisfy, as long as the user sees the task in a Gantt context).
    Is this possible in 2010? Is this possible in 2013?
    Thanks,
    Barak

    Hi, 
    you can easily create a hyper link to project site of that particular project, but unfortunately you are limited to redirect to that project's particular schedule PDP only not to your desire view.
    so once the user will click on link, he/she will be redirected to project site's view which they have opened last time as PS always opens the last view in-use by the user. so there is chance that instead of task related view, they may see resource/assignment
    etc etc view.
    If above is OK with you then great, simply create a ssrs column to redirect to something similar like this: http://<server-name>/<PWA-Instance>project detail pages/schedule.aspx?projuid=<projduid>
    in case above is not satisfactory, then you may need to create another ssrs report to be accessed from that parent report to show you your required results. but then it wont be a gantt view, instead you can show another tabular/graphics report to show required
    data.
    so basically its a trade-off between options :)
    hope this helps.

  • Link from a report to another report

    Hi all,
    I have created a report called GROUPS with GROUPNO as the first column. And I have another report based on SQL query that shows the details for a group and takes the GROUPNO as an input variable. I have created a link from the first report to the second report.
    The problem is that when I run the first report, and when I click on the GROUPNO from the list of groups, the target report is called but no rows are selected. When I point the mouse cursor to one of the GROUPNO, and I look at the breowser status bar, I see that the p_arg_names containts the parameter name but the p_arg_values is empty.
    Any help?

    Hi Sharmila,
    The mapping is already done and the p_arg_names in the status bar shows the p_arg_names=groupno , only the p_arg_values is not taking the value in the field groupno which cause the target report to fail.

  • Link from OBIEE Report to BIP Report

    I have a requirement in which I need to Create a Report in OBIEE and the values used in the prompts to execute the report in OBIEE needs to be passed through a link to BIP and Execute BIP report for selcted parameters.
    The Report is working fine and I am able to pass the parameters from OBIEE to BIP but to make BIP Report function correctly. I have to apply same set of Parameters in BIP and they are visible in the header of the BIP Report.
    Now the Requirement is to hide those parameters from BIP Report and BIP Report should run for the selected parameters from OBIEE dashboard.. On doing this the values passed from OBIEE are not getting filltered in BIP report and BIP Report is running for all records. Is there an alternate way to achieve this?

    if you are on 11.1.1.6 version you can do it i think .

    Enhancements to Parameter Display Options
    Enhancements to parameter display options include:
    Support for radio button and check box display of values
    Parameters that are defined as a menu in the data model can now be configured to display the menu options as a list of radio buttons or check boxes. Parameters configured to support one value support the option to display as radio buttons. Parameters configured to support multiple values support the option to display as check boxes.
    New options for placement of parameters in the report viewer
    Previously the report viewer always displayed the parameters in a horizontal region across the top of the viewer. In this release the display of the parameter region can also be configured in one of the following ways:
    In a vertical region along the right side of the viewer
    As a dialog
    As a separate full page

  • Changing fields in form opened in query mode via a link from a report

    I have a summary report which allows me to access a form via a link: The form opens up with its fields populated with the corresponding record from the report.
    Can additional code be added to the after displaying page section of the form such that some of the fields can be assigned with different values from those in the original record? If so, can anyone offer some sample code for this?

    Hi,
    You can access and set the values of the columns in forms by using certain apis. All the columns in the form are available in the session which can be accessed and set.
    Sample Code
    declare
    flightno number;
    ticketno varchar2(30);
    tdate date;
    persons number;
    blk varchar2(10) := 'DEFAULT';
    begin
    flightno := p_session.get_value_as_varchar2(
    p_block_name => blk,
    p_attribute_name => 'A_FLIGHT_NO');
    ticketno := p_session.get_value_as_varchar2(
    p_block_name => blk,
    p_attribute_name => 'A_TICKET_NO');
    tdate := p_session.get_value_as_date(
    p_block_name => blk,
    p_attribute_name => 'A_TRAVEL_DATE');
    persons := p_session.get_value_as_number(
    p_block_name => blk,
    p_attribute_name => 'A_NOF_PERSONS');
    p_session.set_value(
    p_block_name => blk,
    p_attribute_name => 'A_FLIGHTNO',
    p_value => to_char(NULL)
    p_session.set_value(
    p_block_name => blk,
    p_attribute_name => 'A_TICKETNO',
    p_value => to_char(NULL)
    p_session.set_value(
    p_block_name => blk,
    p_attribute_name => 'A_TRAVEL_DATE',
    p_value => to_char(NULL)
    end;
    The above code sets and gets value of the form fields. The form field is accessed by prefixing "A" to the form column name. For example if the column name is "DEPTNO" then to access or set value to it you should refer to the session variable "A_DEPTNO".
    Thanks,
    Sharmila

  • Link from BIP report to P6RiskModule

    A client of mine is running BI Publisher 11g. In BIP they have a report summarizing the risk against a project. This report is displayed in a BIP Dashboard. The client would like a link in the report that would take them directly to the P6RiskModule. The usernames and passwords for BIP and P6 are identical, so ideally the link should log the user into P6 and display the risk details as entered in P6.

  • I can't copy any data or links from any webpages in Firefox to other programs such as Word

    When i am on different webpages and i try to copy information (URLs, data, links etc) from the webpage and try to paste it into either email messages, MS Outlook 2003 or a MS Word 2003 document, it will not paste. Not sure if this is a Firefox problem or a MS Office problem. It worked fine until about 2 days ago. Now it won't do it at all - have tried from several different webpages, different types of data, different types of desinations (documents, email, etc)
    == noticed it about 2-3 days ago. No changes made to the system.

    What happens if you try to paste into Notepad?
    Also, when you paste into Word, does any data paste at all? Try copying from this forum reply into Word to make sure the problem is with all sites. (Here is some '''bold text''' and ''italic text'' you can try copying)
    You do have an old version of Firefox, so you should try upgrading to the newest release from http://www.mozilla.com/firefox

  • Link from QBE-report to form not working when published as portlets

    I've created a simple QBE-report where I've linked (using a LINK) keyvalues to a detail FORM. Query and linking and automatically display of selected record works fine in the App.builder, - but when I publish the elements as portlets and access the QBE-report as a portlet on a page, - the link fails, no keyvalues are passed to the detail form. It only shows up blank.
    What am I missing here?
    Thankful for any hint.
    Regards,
    Haakon Eide
    [email protected]

    This is strange, - made the same report again, this time as a sql-query (not QBE) - and linked the report and form together exactly as before - this time the link works when using the report as a portlet.
    The QBE-report generates empty parameterstrings (i.e. foo=&bar=&) when run as portlet on a page. Is this a bug?

  • Can't use photos from photostream in mail, web an other applications

    Isn't it possible any more to use photos from photostream to paste them in emails or web forms? I always took photos with my iPhone and then without syncing I used the photos for ebay on my macbook. Now, with mavericks, you can choose "photos" to paste them, but the photos of the photostream are not shown! Thanks for helping, FRED

    Kari,
    what is your MacOS X version and  iPhoto version?
    If you cannot  delete photos from the iLifeAssetManagement folder, then you have a permissions problem. You should be able to do that. Try to fix the permissions for that part of your User Library.
    Navigate again to the  iLifeAssetManagement folder as described above. Then select the Folder and press ⌘I (clover leaf, capital letter I) for "Get Info". You shoud see an ifo panel like this:
    Disclose the "Sharing & Permissions" brick by pressing the disclosure triangle. Press the padlock in the lower right corner and enter your administrator password. Make sure your user account .....(Me) has Rad &Write permissions, change the permissions if necessary. Then click the padlock and select to apply to enclosed items.
    Then try again, if you now can delete photos from the Stream.

  • Link from BOBJ Webi report to CRM webUI screen

    Hi experts,
    I was wondering, if there's a way to create a link from Webi report (based on CRM data) to webUI content in CRM? For example, Webi report will have opportunity numbers. User will be able to click on the opportunity number and get to webUI screen where he could see opportunity details and maybe even modify it.
    Best regards,

    Hi,
    You can link Webi Document to webUI content in CRM with help of Hyperlink based on particular column then you need to parse the data.
    Once Parse button is clicked, it displays with the parts of the URL parsed into sections depending on parameters specified in OpenDocument URL.

  • Restrict URL Access when linking from report

    I have an application that will be a little like a wizard in that I need to control how users get to a form, so I would like to prevent them from being able to just going straight to that page and entering data into the form. I tried using various session state security options, including No URL Access, but that blows up when I try to link from a report to that form for editing purposes.
    Is there some way I can link from the report if the target page restricts URL access, and can get a get a brief overview (or point me to some documentation) on the various branch types? I can't find a good explanation anywhere and I'm hoping that solves my problem.
    thanks.

    Hi,
    1.
    What about using an Authorization Scheme and then using Security of Page Attributes.
    In fact it is schema of users, roles, and passwords.
    2.
    f?p=App:Page:Session:Request:Debug:ClearCache:itemNames:itemValues:PrinterFriendly
    f?p=6000:6004:&SESSION.::NO:6003:MY_ITEM1,MY_ITEM2,MY_ITEM3:1234,,5678
    This example:
    * Runs page 6004 of application 6000 and use the current session ID
    * Clears the current session's cache for items on page 6003
    * Indicates debug information should be hidden (NO)
    * Sets the value of MY_ITEM1 to 1234, sets the value of MY_ITEM2 to null
    (indicated by the comma used as placeholder), and sets the value of MY_ITEM3 to 5678
    - Into Column Attributes/Column Link/Link Text pick an icon.
    - Select for Attributes/Column Link/Target “URL” for table Emp_Address and into URL field type:
    javascript: popupURL('f?p=&APP_ID.: 6004:&SESSION…………');
    You can use the value of any Item. Then in the URL link page check that item.
    Moreover, you can use f?p=&APP_ID.: 6004:&SESSION…..My_Item:#ReportColumnName#.......

  • How to add a "custom" link to a report column

    I have a "Tasks" report that is based on a view. the view is a union of 2 tables: "Project tasks" and "Non-project tasks", each one of them has its own form to enter the data.
    I need to add a link from my report to to either form of the mentioned tables. So, if the task is project related, it should go to the "Projects Task" form, but if the task is no related to projects, the link should point to the second form.
    How can I accomplish that in Apex 4.0 ?
    Thanks

    The view has a column for project name, if it was a non-project task, the column is defaulted to "Non-Project"Add another column to the report query (or to the view if it's a Wizard report), based on that column:
    case project_name
      when 'Non-Project' then '201' /* Page ID of non-project task form */
      else '202' /* Page ID of project task form */
    end form_page
    ...Then add a link to the required report column as described above by Alan, setting the target Page attribute to <tt>#FORM_PAGE#</tt>, the Name attribute of the task ID parameter to <tt>P#FORM_PAGE#_TASK_ID</tt> (the form pages will need to take task ID parameters following this naming convention), and the Value attribute to the task ID column from the view.
