[OBIEE 11g] OBIEE11g Using Dashboard Templates


OBIEE11g using Dashboard Templates

When logging in for the first time you normally get an empty dashboard page: 

Wouldn’t it be nicer if you can give a dashboard which already has some content ?

Let prep the instance config.xml

add: <DefaultName>Template</DefaultName> between the <Dashboard> tags

Now let’s make a template dashboard.

Step 1 build a nice dashboard:

Save this dashboard in the shared folder with the name ‘Template’

First create a folder Template:

Create a folder dashboards:

Next save:

Set the owner in the catalog

Create a new user:

don’t forget to assign it to a group:

Log in to OBIEE:

Check the catalog folder of the user to see that it’s actually saved as a personal dashboard.

This is ideal to create cooperate standard default dashboards for all users.
