OBIEE Sampleapp107 Deployment on windows

OBIEE Sampleapp107 Deployment on windows


  • Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition
  • Database : Simple install Oracle 11g R2. OBIEE SampleApp deploys a set of small sized database schemas to support the examples
Copy SampleApp deployment folder in any local drive(D drive in my case).

1. Configure Install script:

Edit the “installSA.bat” installation script using a text editor to specify correct values for the following variable names. “installSA.bat” file will be used on Windows/DOS environments and “installSA.sh” file will be used on Linux/Unix environments. Double check the values for following variable values. Incorrect values can result in incorrect setup or environment corruption :

OBIEE_INSTALL_HOME – this should contain full directory path to OBIEE installation, for example,
- Under Windows : D:\OBIEE11G

OBIEE_INSTANCE – this should contain the active instance folder name. It is set to “instance1” by default.
  Save and execute the batch file from command prompt

These two copy steps need to be manually executed with the appropriate paths on your setup.

1) Copy Comment.gif and NoComment.gif from your SampleApp install location /Actions/CommentaryArtifacts to the following two locations on your OBIEE install

and /installhome/user_projects/domains/bifoundation_domain/servers/bi_server1/tmp/_WL_user/analytics_11.1.1/7dezjl/war/res/s_blafp/images

2) Copy UserScripts.js from your SampleApp install location /Actions/CommentaryArtifacts to the following two locations on your OBIEE install

/installhome/ Oracle_BI1/bifoundation/web/app/res/b_mozilla/actions

2. Restoring Database Dumps:

In this section, we will use Oracle data pump to import the definition and data for several database schemas. If any of these schemas exist, they must be dropped before you begin the import. 

List of Users:


Connect to database using a sysdba user .
create a directory object to import the database dump.

Import the dump file SASchemas.dmp using the following command.

impdp 'sys/sysdba@orcl1 as sysdba' directory=datapumpdir dumpfile=SASchemas.dmp version= schemas=BISAMPLE,OBIEE_NAVTEQ,BIFOD,BIBPM,DEV_ODI_REPO,ODI_STAGING LOGFILE=SASchemas_imp.log

If the command executes successfully it will run as follows…

NOTE:- Change the value of Version parameter depending on the version of your target database. 
During the import process you may get the warning ORA-39082: Object type VIEW:"BISAMPLE"."ODM_SAMP_CUSTOMERS_LTV" created with compilation warnings.
This a known warning and can be ignored.

Once the import is completed, connect back to the database using a sysdba user and execute the following sql commands

alter user BISAMPLE identified by BISAMPLE;
alter user OBIEE_NAVTEQ identified by obiee_navteq;
alter user BIFOD identified by BIFOD;
alter user BIBPM identified by BIBPM;
alter user DEV_ODI_REPO identified by DEV_ODI_REPO;
alter user ODI_STAGING identified by ODI_STAGING;

Next connect as obiee_navteq/obiee_navteq@sampledb1 and execute the following insert statements 

insert into user_sdo_maps select * from obiee_navteq.my_maps;
insert into user_sdo_themes select * from obiee_navteq.my_themes;
insert into user_sdo_styles select * from obiee_navteq.my_styles;
insert into user_sdo_cached_maps select * from obiee_navteq.my_tile_cache;
