Easy method to create BIP 11g reports on top of OBIEE dashboards


This blog talks about a quick way to create BIP reports on top of OBIEE dashboards.


I have used 2 graphs from Sample Sales catalog for the purpose of this demo.















Edit the dashboard














Select the Print Options link








Select Custom Print Layouts -> Create Layouts











Thats it, OBIEE will do all the work of creating a layout and a data model for you.
















Hit the View Report button to see your report.














You will find the xdo and xdm files for this BIP report in the same folder in which the dashboard exists.

I got and an error message:
An error occurred while importing dashboard page.
Failed to add sample data to BI Publisher data model.

Does anybody know how to fix it?

Try creating a data model manually using OBIEE as data source.

This must be a configuration issue which is resulting in BIP not being able to connect to OBIEE and hence not being able to add sample data.
