OBIEE 11g Prompt Settings

Configuring for Prompts OBIEE 11g



You can configure settings that affect the way that users work with prompts, as described in this section.
To configure for prompts:
  1. Open the instanceconfig.xml file

  1. Locate the sections in which you must add the elements that are described
  2. Include the elements and their ancestor elements as appropriate, as shown in the following example:
  3. <ServerInstance>
      <Prompts>
        <MaxDropDownValues>256</MaxDropDownValues>
        <AutoApplyDashboardPromptValues>true</AutoApplyDashboardPromptValues>
        <AutoSearchPromptDialogBox>true</AutoSearchPromptDialogBox>
        <AutoCompletePromptDropDowns>
          <SupportAutoComplete>true</SupportAutoComplete>
          <CaseInsensitive>true</CaseInsensitive>
          <MatchingLevel>MatchAll</MatchingLevel>
          <ResultsLimit>50</ResultsLimit>
        </AutoCompletePromptDropDowns>
      </Prompts>
    </ServerInstance>
    
  4. Note that this example does not include elements that might exist in the file, but that are centrally managed by Fusion Middleware Control and cannot be changed manually.
  5. Save your changes and close the file.
  6. Restart Oracle Business Intelligence.
Descriptions of Settings

Element
Description
Default Value
AutoApplyDashboardPromptValues
Specifies whether to display various fields, as described in the following list:
If True, then
  • The Show Apply Button and Show Reset Button fields are displayed on the Edit Page Settings dialog.
  • The Prompts Apply Buttons and Prompts Reset Buttons fields are displayed in the Dashboard Properties dialog.
  • The Prompt Buttons on Current Page option is displayed on the Dashboard builder's Tools menu.
If False, then
  • The Show Apply button and Show Reset button fields are not displayed on the Edit Page Settings dialog.
  • The Prompts Apply Buttons and Prompts Reset Buttons fields are not displayed in the Dashboard Properties dialog.
  • The Prompt Buttons on Current Page option is not displayed on the Dashboard builder's Tools option.
True
AutoSearchPromptDialog
Specifies whether search results are displayed and highlighted when the user types the search parameter (without clicking the Search button).
True
CaseInsensitive
Specifies whether the auto-complete functionality is case-insensitive. If set to True, case is not considered when a user enters a prompt value such as "Oracle" or "oracle." If set to False, case is considered when a user enters a prompt value, so the user must enter "Oracle" and not "oracle" to find the Oracle record. The system recommends the value with the proper case.
True
Matching Level
Specifies whether the auto-complete functionality uses matching to find the prompt value that the user enters into the prompt field. These settings do not apply when the user accesses the Search dialog to locate and specify a prompt value.
Use the following settings:
  • StartsWith — Searches for a match that begins with the text that the user types. For example, the user types "M" and the following stored values are displayed: "MicroPod" and "MP3 Speakers System".
  • WordStartsWith — Searches for a match at the beginning of a word or group of words. For example, the user types "C" and the following values are displayed: "ComCell", "MPEG Camcorder", and "7 Megapixel Digital Camera".
  • MatchAll — Searches for any match within the word or words.
MatchAll
MaxDropDownValues
Specifies the maximum number of choices to display in the following locations:
  • In choice lists in dashboard prompts.
  • In the Available list of the Select Values dialog that is displayed when the user clicks the Search link in a prompt and the More link to display additional choices.
  • In the Available list of the Select Values dialog when the user performs a search in that dialog.
256
ResultsLimit
Specifies the number of matching values that are returned when the auto-complete functionality is enabled.
50
SupportAutoComplete
Enables or disables the auto-complete functionality of prompts. A setting of True turns auto-complete on, which means that the Prompts Auto-Complete field is displayed and is set to On in the My Account dialog and in the Dashboard Properties dialog.
A setting of False turns auto-complete off, which means that the auto-complete fields in the My Account and Dashboard Properties dialogs are not available.
False, unless you are running Oracle BI EE on the Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine
