OBIEE 11g couple of Bugs/Issues


The big giant Oracle releases the major version of OBIEE in August 2010 after it is directly take over from Siebel and after quite lot a time OBIEE 10g matured. However there are the couple of the issues I identified during working in UI layer for OBIEE 11g (11.1.1.3.0) . Somebody might notice this and somebody might ignore and expect some intermediate patch to correct those issues later.

I am hereby attaching the screenshots for those UI bugs which I truly think as a bug ! I will keep this thread up-to-date whenever I feel something is not right and on track 🙂

I would rather expect an intelligent cross-hair for below so that one cross- hair on Products will allow to move all the respective presentation columns under the presentation table and the other cross- hair on individual column to allow moving (drag and drop) them individually across the criteria selection pane.

The problem with mapviewer is that after you click on Logout and confirm the logout,still  in the next page it still redirects to the previous page .This really annoying !

Clicking on display “collapsible” link  for prompt layout results the Display layout shift at the bottom of the page. This seems to be an scripting issue and the problem is there for both Internet Explorer and Mozilla firefox .

Just Click on ‘-‘ beside “Display” and see the next layout .This is an issue ! The extra white space between prompt definition and display is not acceptable at all ….

I was just trying to move one Presentation column from Excluded section to Display Slider section of the dashboard layout of my Graph view of a report and unfortunately I am not being able to do that . This is weird and irritating! Ideal scenario is that when you are trying to move the excluded section column to either Sections region or Slider region the “Layout” should auto-scroll to top just to allow you to do that .But this is not the case !! Hence I think this is an issue.This has been found in my Mozilla Firefox 4.0 version as well as IE8 browser.

So currently the workaround is , I have to go around halfway to the layout for e.g. drag till Measures / Bars and Lines section and then scroll a bit and then again drag . Another workaround just to make a bigger browser screen just to make the “Full Screen View” and directly drag it.The ideal one probably to expand the layout region using the “up and down mouse arrow” in section separator just above “Layout” 🙂

In a single dashboard page I put 2 master reports and 1 detail report side by side and it causes column sort order spill over to next attribute in display and for the last display attribute it is out or region display.This results the problem of setting the Sort while my column heading interaction is On .

See below:

However I found that the issue happening for Mozilla firefox 4.0 version and it doesn’t cause any concern in IE8 .

Ohh… Oracle did a very good job delivering a so-called highly demanding product with loads of expectation to meet user expectations , however loads of end-user friendliness and developer friendliness have been overlooked ! Anyway in my today’s finding I did notice a WoW factor …. see below ! Attribute/column movement around the sections of Slider and Graph prompt is uni-directional 🙂 i.e. you can move from left to right and not right to left !! That essentially means if you are having 5 attributes together in the Graph prompt section to make the lastly added attribute in the first of the list you have to perform the jugglery with the columns ! So ridiculous … :)(:

P.S:This issue has not been observed neither in movement of the attributes across measures section or nor during the movement in the criteria section .
