OBIEE 11g Dashboard Background Image or Watermark

Linux x64 tested

1. Make sure analyticsRes folder is active in weblogic for customizations

Check out the section Exposing a Static Directory in WebLogic Server

I normally use this location for customizations or images etc..


(Remember i will make this deployment accessible from the following location setting is ticked) when deploying analyticsRes folder in weblogic.

2. Upload your image file to the Linux box for OBIEE within anaylticsRes folder.

3. Edit or create an OBIEE Dashboard and insert a Text Box within the text box paste the following code

<script type="text/javascript">var obj = document.getElementById('DashboardPageContentDiv'); = "url('/analyticsRes/abstract.jpg') white center no-repeat fixed"</script>

Remember to tick the html box . Save your dashboard.
I uploaded an image called abstract.jpg.

When you view your dashboard your image will be in the background.
