Overview
This tutorial covers how to use Oracle Business Intelligence Answers to create queries, format views, charts, and add user interactivity and dynamic content to enhance the user experience. You create queries and work with views including charts, pivot tables, and narratives. You then create selectors to drive interactivity in your Business Intelligence requests, and build a custom Dashboard to contain the requests and views you've created. Finally, you work with dashboard prompts to filter your dashboard and populate variables.

Scenario
The dashboard you build in this tutorial charts sales for the last 12 months by channel, country region, and product category and provides trend analysis data as well as narrative highlights of categories that have declined in sales in the last month.

Prerequisites
This tutorial accompanies the BIC2G:EE 10.1.3.2 VMWare image (Linux Edition v1.0). Make sure you have 2 GB RAM and 15 GB hard disk space. Have VMWARE Player, or VMWARE Sever installed on your machine. If you do not have VMWare software, download a copy of VMWare Player from http://www.vmware.com/download/player/ . To set the Linux VMWare image to use the correct data sets and business model, take the following steps: 1. Boot up the Linux VMWare image waiting until the image console displays a welcome message. Follow the instructions on that screen to connect to the hosted server from a local browser 2. In a browser, go to the Process Control page http://oracle2go.us.oracle.com/go/process_control/pc.html 3. Change the repository and WebCatalog to sh.rpd and SH respectively. These configuration files set up the BI Server to use the Sales History schema that is shipped for the Oracle database. to store the new settings. Wait for the changes to be reflected in the Log and underneath Click the process state indicators for Oracle BI Server and Oracle BI Presentation Server. If either of these have red flags beside them, select the checkbox and click When this process is complete, the control page should look like the example below.

4. In a browser, navigate to http://oracle2go.us.oracle.com:9704/analytics , Enter Administrator as the User ID and password, and click Log In.

Creating a Query and a Chart
In this topic you build and format a business intelligence request using Oracle BI Answers, and create and format a chart. Create a query Add a filter Create totals and format results Create a chart

To create a query, perform the following steps: 1. Click the Answers link to navigate to the Answers start page, and select the Sales History subject area by clicking the SH link in the Subject Areas list.

In this example, there is only one subject area, but there could be a long list, depending on the metadata that is defined in the Oracle Business Intelligence repository, which can contain multiple subject areas. Subject areas are sets of related information with a common business purpose.

2.

In the left-hand selection pane of the Answers interface, click the Plus icon next to Times to expand it. Expand the Calendar table and click the Calendar Month Desc column to add it to your query criteria, which appears in the right pane.

The query you are building has one measure and three attributes.

3

3.

Click the Calendar Month Name column to add it to your query. From the Products table, add the Prod Category column. Finally, add Measures > Sales Facts > Amount Sold (000). Your query should look like this:

4.

You can reorder the columns in your query by clicking and dragging them. Drag the Prod Category column in front of the columns from the Calendar table in your query. Your query criteria should look like this:

Now drag the column back to its original location.

5.

Add a saved filter to the query to limit the data to the last 12 months (based on the SH data, this will cover from January to December 2001). Under Filters in the left-hand selection pane, expand the SH folder and click the Most Recent 12 Months. The Apply Saved Filter dialog box is displayed.

This filter has been created and saved in a shared folder so that it can be used by other users. The filter uses a variable defined as the value of the maximum month ID, which has been created in the Oracle BI repository metadata to ensure that it is synchronized with the data.

6.

Click OK in the Apply Saved Filter dialog box to add the filter to your query.

4

7.

Click the Advanced tab. The Advanced tab can be made available only to specific users. The XML fully defines the query (including chart formats in case of charts). The SQL defines the content of the query. Note that any query or reporting tool that can issue SQL over ODBC connection, can issue a query to the BI server, just like Answers. Examine the request XML that defines the view and the logical SQL that will be issued for the query.

The Request XML defines the whole analysis, including logical SQL and views for the query. The SQL Issued field contains only the logical SQL that will be issued to the Oracle BI Server for processing. Note the saw_X column aliases, which are added automatically. Editing the logical SQL will change your view definitions.

To add a filter for the direct channel, perform the following steps: 1. Click the Criteria tabs, using the selection pane, add Channels > Channel Desc to your query criteria.

2.

In the criteria pane, click the Filter

button on the Channel Desc column to add a filter on that column.

5

You can also limit the list of choices by setting a match criteria using the Match drop-down menu and entering a string. Direct Sales is added as a value in the filter. 4. In the Create/Edit Filter dialog box. The Limited Choices link will limit choices to those that are consistent with any pre-existing filters. 5. You are filtering on the channel. Another way to achieve this result is to CTRL-click the column in the selection pane. Click the Delete button (with and X) on the Channel Desc column to delete it from the criteria. but you don't need the column in your query. Click OK to create the filter. but doesn't add the column to the query criteria. which opens the Create/Edit Filter dialog box with the selected column. click the All Choices link to display all values for the column. then clicking the All Choices link. The filter is added to the existing saved filter you used earlier. 6 .3. Verify that the Operator for the filter is set to "is equal to / is in" and then click the Direct Sales value in the list of choices.

7 . Later. By default. or by clicking the Display Results button below the columns in your query criteria. you will add these different types of views to a dashboard. a Title view and a Table view. Other ways to view results are by clicking the view buttons below the tabs in the Criteria pane. you can delete these default views and add other views to the Compound Layout. Your query criteria should look like this: 7. As you will see.6. Click the Results tab to view the results of your query. the results are displayed in the Compound Layout view. which contains two other views.
