Narrative view issue with OBIEE 11g


Currently I was looking into Narrative view syntax for OBIEE 11g and it seems the older HTML tag based syntax is obsolete and not work properly as expected .Therefore ,  below syntax is not functional anymore with OBIEE 11g however it works perfectly fine with OBIEE 10.1.3.4.0 release :

<table width=”100%” cellpadding=”3″>
<tr>
<td width=”60%” align=”left” valign=”top”><b><font size=”2″>Prescription Sales</font></b></td>
<td width=”40%”align=”left” valign=”top”><b><font size=”2″ color=”green”><u>@2</u></font></b></td>
</tr>
</table> 
 

However following syntax works fine:

[b]Hello World[/b] = [b]@2[/b]

In order to get the above HTML tag based example working fine we need to do two things:

1) Set HardenXSS to false in the instanceconfig.xml file and restart the service. Here is a snippet of a working instanceconfig.xml with this tag:

<Security>
<!–This Configuration setting is managed by Oracle Business Intelligence
Enterprise Manager–>
<ClientSessionExpireMinutes>210</ClientSessionExpireMinutes>
<!–HardenXSS is not managed by Enterprise manager–>
<HardenXSS>false</HardenXSS>
</Security>

2) Restart the Presentation server after making changes to instanceconfig.xml.

3) Check the “Contains HTML markup” checkbox in the Narative view.
