You might have seen a couple of these on the net the last couple of days. So I thought I will give it a shot also. Problem was I couldn’t get it to work, which was driving me nuts….. Thanks to Paul from http://total-bi.com for leading me trough this temporary period of insanity
Ok here we go:
Start with a new folder on you file system called OBIEE_META:
copy the WEB-INF folder from the analyticsRes into this folder:
open the current active rpd offline in the administration tool: (this is the one ending with the highest _BI00xx number!)
goto tools > utilities
select Generate Metadata Dictionary:
Browse to the OBIEE_META folder
close the administration tool.
Check the OBIEE_META folder
!! sometimes the administration tool adds an .rpd extension to the folder, if so remove it !!
next open your weblogic console:
press the lock & edit button, go to deployments:
Enter the OBIEE_META folder location, press next
Select Install this deployment as an application, press next
Select the bi_cluster as deployment target, press next
Select I will make the deployment accessible from the following location, press next.
press activate changes
go to the deployment screen and locate OBIEE_META.
start the application.
check the status:
open the instanceconfig.xml in an editor, add the following:
<!-- My Custom Stuff Metadata Dictionary—>
<!-- replace localhost with the actual hostname –>
just above the </ServerInstance> tag
Open your enteprise manage en restart the presentation server:
Log in to analytics and create a new request:
don’t panic if the dictionary symbol isn’t enabled, you have to click on the subject area first!
Click on the symbol
