EAL – Essbase Analytics Link for HFM Installation

EAL Installation

Oracle Essbase Analytics Link for Hyperion Financial Management provides a seamless integration between Hyperion Financial Management applications and Business Intelligence tools. Analytics Links enables the ability to effortlessly expose HFM from within an Essbase database and use the Essbase analytical features on top of live HFM data.

Important Note: Prior to installing this product, you must download and install Oracle Universal Installer. Please refer to the Oracle Essbase or Oracle Hyperion Financial Management, Fusion Edition links for downloading these products.

*Keep in mind that this installation cannot be rolled back.

First, start the OUI installer.

Browse to the path where products.xml exists under the unzipped EAL.

Fill in the installation path for EAL and start installation.

Configuration will startup after installation, then enter weblogic server details and analytic link repository details.

Oracle suggests not using the default EPM Instance Home location at the Foundation Configuration step, but it shouldn’t matter.

Give a suitable Username and password for the Data Sync Server and use an account that is an Administrator to configure Analytics Link services.
