OBIEE Print Dashboard Page PDF without Prompts

By default, OBIEE does not allow you to print PDF without the prompts. The best workaround is to create a custom button using javascript which points to a hidden dashboard page made for printing.

Demystifying OBIEE Essbase Date Measure – The Solution

About the mystery

One of my readers, Saptarshi, asked an excellent question. Original post here: http://mondaybi.com/2014/08/07/an-essbase-obiee-integration-walk-through-with-tips-and-tricks/

He asked:

I am integrating Essbase and OBIEE. I have few measures (accounts) as date in Essbase, such as Receipt Date etc.

Now when I fetch this in OBIEE, they appear as numbers.

How to get date measures from Essbase to OBIEE exactly the way they are sitting in Essbase?

And he’s right! They do appear as numbers. So I Googled and see how frequent this question is asked and if there were already answers I can refer him to. This is what I got!

Opps, just questions, no answers! Questions like this comes in every few years. Saptarshi actually also posted in Oracle Community too, 16 hours ago! Good job Google! As promised last night, I’m going to demystify and give you a solution to this! In return, just like my Facebook page which was just launched yesterday! Click here!
